Recycle a cereal box and a soda can and what do you get? At Instructables Paul Em shows us how to turn these throwaways into slick travel-size flashlights. Of course you’ll need a short list of other materials, including a light bulb and AA batteries, but most of what you’ll need Paul says you can find in your cupboards. “An hour or so with some scissors, a Coke can and a cereal box and you’re pretty much set to go.”
