Not only has the packing begun, but the secret work of art is well under way as well. This past step has been more difficult that I imagined, so now I'm wondering how the next step will work itself out. You see, after cutting the cans up I needed to flatten them, and three weeks under some heavy, old National Geographics hasn't really helped as much as I anticipated. It turns out the aluminum on the beer cans is shaped and formed better than I imagined. But no fear here. This may work out in the end, or at least I'm imagining a better solution than what I was imagining before.
