Put one end of the cord through the top hole of the tab and the other end through the bottom hole. This first soda can tab should be at the very center of the cord.

Step 4: 2nd Soda Can Tab

Get another tab and put it under the first tab but on top of the cord. Place the tab so the sharp sides of both tabs are facing each other. Half of the tab should be under the first one and half of it should be uncovered. Pull the top of the cord through the top holes of the tabs and pull the bottom of the cord through the bottom holes of the tabs.

Step 5: 3rd Soda Can Tab

Get another tab and put it on top of the 2nd tab but under the cord. Put the top of the cord through the bottom holes of the tabs and put the bottom of the cord through the top holes of the tabs. The cord will form an "x" over the top two tabs.

Step 6: Continue the Pattern
