Turn aluminum can tabs into cool jewelry!
Step 1: Gather your supplies
You also need elastic cord and scissors. That's it! No other supplies necessary.
Step 2: Start assembling
Loop through the first tab, situating the tab at center of cord.
Step 3: Another tab
Thread the cord up from the bottom through both tabs, bringing top cord through top hole and bottom cord through bottom hole.
Step 4: And another tab
and this time, thread the cords through the opposite holes forming an X on top.
Step 5: Keep going
top cord-top hole, bottom cord-bottom hole.
Step 6: Don't give up
Step 7: Almost done
until bracelet can be wrapped around your wrist and ends meet comfortably.
You need the last tab to be one placed at the back side.
Then, bring ends together and form final X.
Step 9: Masterpiece!
There should be just enough stretch to easily go
over your hand and then be lightly snug on your wrist.
Step 10: Add personality.
You can paint the tabs, use colored elastic, add beads,
anything you can think of.
Well, I hope my tutorial is clear
and you enjoy making your own pop tab bracelet.
