    A flashlight is pretty much a given in any household. They keep us safe in dark areas and are always there if an emergency should ever occur and we are out of electricity. There are many hacks out there that turn everyday household items into useful tools and this is one of those.

    Paul em, a user on Instructables, shows us how we can make a flashlight out of tin foil, a coke can, a cereal box, and a few other things. This ingenuity is fantastic.

    First, he took an empty soda can, rinsed it clean, and paired it with a large cereal box

    He then cut off the top and bottom of the can, and then cut the can vertically

    Next, he cut the aluminum into the shape of a printed paper stencil

    He then cut out the shape

    Once the shape was cut, he pulled back the paper to reveal the printed coke can surface

    Then he added a small light bulb

    Once he was done with the coke can, he moved on to the cereal box. He cut the cereal box into flat pieces. He then dyed the cardboard (or non-printed) side of the cereal box with food dye

    Once he was happy with the color, he applied two coats of varnish to give it a protective finish. He then printed out another paper stencil

    He then cut out the shape and folded according to the stencil, making sure to keep the card true to the lines

    Using foil, he made them into a small, square box

    With more foil, he made a fan-like component, and folded it as well

    Finally, he took a piece of cardboard and attached a string

    With the aid of two AA batteries, he put everything together

    He then slipped the dyed cover over all the mechanical components

    And here it is…
