I finally finished! I have seen a few of these on here and just had to try it for myself. Sorry no tute...I found a how to video on you tube...just search  pop tab and a few will come up.
I couldn't get it to lay straight but if you look at the one hanging om my dress form it looks better.
I am pretty happy with it..I pretty much just winged it when putting it together...what do you think?




I used 900 pop tabs!

the strap is 2 rows of 170 each= 340
and the two side panels are 7 rows of 40 = 560

I didn't figure on how to close it. I don't think I want a zipper...any other ideas?

I like your purse.  I've made one similar to yours.  Unfortunately, I have not posted 10 times to the forum, and I can't figure out how to post pics so that you can see.

That looks so good! I can't believe how many tabs you used.
If you didn't want to use a zipper, I think a magnet closure would work unless it sticks to the pop tabs. Velcro would probably work too but it's not as reliable

Super awesome bag! Perhaps a snap would work? Say just around the middle, on the inside?

That is so cool! How long did it take you to make it? Was it hard to do? Maybe a snap on the inside?

Thanks! It took me about 2 weeks to do... I messed up on the inside lining a few times because i'm a dummy and didn't measure properly and a few of the pop tabs came apart..

It was a lot of fun to make though! I'm thinking about doing another one! :-)

 Smiley It took a few months. I was lucky that my mother in law saved them for me as well. I just keep a jar next to the recycle bin and pop them off before I toss the can.

fyi: You can purchase jar fulls on ebay or check if there is a "Ronal McDonald House" in your neighborhood. They will give them to you for a small donation.

Happy Easter everyone!  Smiley
