You will need lots of pop tabs. Get as many as you can depending on the project and what you use it for. You will also need tin snips, a pare of pliers, and a sheet of paper (for transporting your creation.)

Step 2: Preparing

Take your tin snips and cut a slit in the large part of the pop tab. Next take your pliers and bend the pop tab on a 45 degree angle. Make sure you do it on the correct side. see the picture. Prep all of your pop tabs now because it will save you time.

    Ok, very cool. I have seen a lot of pop top bracelets and maille wannabees but this is the first I have seen woven. I think a slightly better name would be popmaille but that's just me. again I really like it though.
