Hiya! I really like the soda tab bracelet too! I bet you can get a bunch of different looks just by changeing the ribbon... I might have to try that out. Anyways, sweet stuff!

Thanks josywosy and ArmyOfMe! The bracelet's my favorite, too. I have many different variations. The bracelets that I'm working on now have the same type of polka-dot pattern, but are maroon.

That is such a cute poptab bracelet! I made some with twine once. I love how it looks with the ribbon!

And those corona earrings? So cute! My sister works with a gal who loves the stuff. How did you manage to get the tops off without bending them?

Thanks Smiley

I have no idea! I don't drink beer, personally I think it tastes bad and prefer wine/liquor. A bunch of my friends, however, knew I was collecting pop tabs so they threw these in. Most of them were horribly bent, but some I was able to use. Haha, I'm thinking maybe some of my super strong/slightly drunk friends thought you could twist them off somehow instead of popping them off?

I'm gonna sound dumb, but how did you make those caps into earrings? Those would make an awsome birthday gift for my sister.

Its the heart afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance
Its the dream afraid of waking
That never takes the chance
Its the one who wont be taken
That cannot seem to give
And the soul afraid of dying
That never learns to live.

I second that question - I've put holes in guitar picks with heated needles, and thats really easy as the plastic just melts, but did you have to use a drill for the metal bottlecaps, or is it a sneaky glue job....??

Thanks for showing interest frenchbelle89, weeza, and prettyinpunk!

Heh, it's not a dumb queston at all. I just used a really small drill bit and drilled holes in the side of the cap. You know, the bumpy side that you hold onto to twist those things off. I can post pictures if this is unclear.
