Here it is!

and on my arm:


First you need to get yourself a LOT of pop tops.

I needed like 30 for my wrist.

Dig through your neighbor's recycle bin if you don't feel like chugging down sugar water.

But you need to be sure to leave the little circle thing attached to the pop top.

So turn the pop top around backwards like that, and pull!!

It takes some practice, and be carefull, I have cut my fingers a few times on the can opening....

(just a picture showing the diffrerent types of pop tops, square and *round*)

And now grab some elastic. Like 1/8 or 1/16 of an inch kind, cause it needs to fit through the little pop top holes.

Thread it through your pop tops like this:

when it will fit nicely around your wrist, tie the elastic sort of tightly, all the pop tops should line up very neatly.

And there you have it!

If there are any problems, please let me know right away!

Haha, I collect those things for my sorority. You can cash them in for money and proceeds go to the Ronald McDonald House. Cute, though.

just light the match and run, run from all those times, she poured gasoline, and by fires light she cryed, she cryed all night, until the salt from her tears, rusted shut her eyes, she should have shut her eyes...

I'd LOVE to make these but I am exceedingly paranoid: Do they rub against your skin or cause you rashes? I have sensitive skin. Smiley

They have never bothered me, but I made one for my friend and she put duct tape on the underside of the bracelet. Or you could hot glue some fake fur or other soft lining to it if you want!
