This is amazing.  It reminds me when many years ago, when soda cans didn't  have POP TOPS, but PULL TOPS.  For those that may not know the difference, a PULL TOP the tab and sealing piece was pulled completely off the can. My sister made a vest from these, and really could only use those that had both pieces still attached to one another.  There was never a photo, but I wish there were. 

Keep up the good work of reusing what many throw in to our trash pile.

Thank you, Buckleigh.  I've also heard those old tabs referred to as zip tops.  The daughter and I recently found a handful by our lake over here.  Not enough to make anything with, yet.  Smiley  I would have loved to see the zip top vest.
