I can't believe how many hits this got!  I'm glad you all liked it so much!  And the ones you guys made look great.  I'm sure my Mexican children would be very proud!

This was the frst project I saw on this board and as soon as I saw them I said OOOOH, I HAVE TO HAVE THOSE. I bought 2 24 packs of soda, invited my friends over and had a soda drinking party. Now I have my family and friends finding them for me because I want to make more all different colors and with different colored ribbons with matching chockers and anklets. I'm also going to check out some recycling centers. My next one I am going to use red nail polish and paint them red, I used to do this when I was younger, then I'g going to spray paint them with a clear finish to keep from chipping and to give them a shiny look like I do with my porcelin stuff, and use my second black shoe lace I have for them. I used one shoe lace folded in half with a loop to tie it.

It occurs to me that this project could make a good choker necklace.  Anyone tried that yet?

I made a chocker.  Amazingly, it doesn't scratch into my neck at all!  I used some spare red Lion Brand Chenille for the stringing.  I like it but it may be better for someone younger, like late teens and early 20s.  I'd only wear it to concerts as 30  year old just can't pull that look off on a daily basis.  Grin

has anyone tried painting the tabs with a metal paint?
That would give you color, but I'm not sure if it would rub off.

i love this craft! i made a necklace, though i filed downthe rough edges and used clear nail polish so aluminum wouldn't get all over my clothing. i also used twill tape and a soup can tab for a pendant ill post it if i get the chance.
