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

Supplies:

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

    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

    I could probably make three necklaces with all of the cans I have lying around right now. Give me a week and I'll have another 4 necklaces. Great instructable.

    DON'T ADD THE KEY RINGS. Just make it continueous like you're making another link, but just connecting the two ends. You'll save 2 keyrings, and not have to worry about keeping the rings on the back of you're neck.
