Soda Pop Tab Jewelry

Recycle and Re-Purpose!    What a GREAT craft project.  We asked neighbors to collect their pop tabs to show you how to make necklaces, headbands, key chains, bracelets – the sky’s the limit to what you can create!    

You can use ribbon of your choice; a terrific way to use up those extra pieces. These are for guys and gals alike. My daughter Delsi was so kind to learn to do this just for YOU.  So grab some pop tabs, ribbon and accessorize, make these up for gifts, girls night out, or anything your heart desires.
