Step 1: Supplies

All you need to make this bracelet is a whole lot o' can tabs and pliers with wire cutters!!!

Step 2: Cutting N' Connecting

There are two ends to a can tab, one is fat and one is skinny. For all the can tabs that you have cut only the skinny end with your wire cutters. Then connect all of your tabs, it goes skinny end, to fat end. 

Step 3: Final Connector

Now you have one last tab! You need to take your pliers and bend down the fat part so it makes it skinny, then cut it with your wire cutters. 

Step 4: Done!
