Introduction: Soda Tab Chain

how to build a super-cool chain out of soda tabs I DO NOT TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS IDEA FOR I ONLY MODIFIED IT, NOT CREATED IT

Step 1: Supplies

all you need is nail clippers, 2 key rings, and a whole bunck of soda tabs

Step 2: Clip Tabs

use the nail clipper to slice edges of soda tabs, thin bend them out of shape

Step 3: Connect

cut 4, then attach them to the smaller opening on the back of another 4. make sure they dont come out by bending them back to their original shape

Step 4: Keep Going!

keep cutting and connecting them, until you have a long chain

Step 5: Add Key Rings

put the key rings on both ends of the chain. You can use a small carribener, or anything (a key ring works for me)

Step 6: Put It to Use

the chain can be used like any other chain (but without the same breaking strength). they are cheap, easy, and look really cool

i have over 400 soda tabs (took me forever to count) now i can actually use them !!!

nice, alternate the cuts (Ieft, right) to add strength.

took me 3 weeks to get all the soda tabs

or do what i did: go to a party and find all of the loose cans on tables and in recycling cans

Okay instructable, it would be better if you used flash on your camera though. Other than that, it's great!

That is pretty cool it would be better if you used different colored pop tabs in patterns along the chain

Monster energy drinks have round ones the same size as the ones from soda cans, guiness bee have gold ones.

yeah, but you'd only have it at the end because monster energy drink tabs only have one hole XD

i didnt have any, but you can use any soda tabs
