Soda or pop can tabs are being reused in a variety of craft projects. This is a guide about crafts using pop can tabs.
This is my latest creation! My fun bracelet is made from soda pop tabs. I used alcohol inks and stretch cord to transform this "junk" into stylish jewelry! They're super easy to make and fun for kids to wear.
Source: I Googled "What can I make with pop tabs?" and got results for purses and bracelets, but none were colored like this.
I love it. It's such a fun little bracelet. Thank you for the great idea :D
Hey! Love your bracelet! Was wondering what you used to paint your pop tabs?

How did you attach the coke tab to the picture?
One of the most clever ideas for picture hanging that has been posted in the last 5+ years. Thank you.
An inexpensive way to hang items up that are not in a frame like sea shells, ceramics, or really anything for that matter, is to use a soda or beer tab top. Just attach it either by super glue or E-6000 for heavier items. I have done this for years. I always get asked "How did you get that to hang up like that?"

What is E-6000? I need to hang rather heavy 6"x6" decorative trivets on my kitchen wall. Will super glue work?
E-6000 is an industrial strength adhesive. You can find it at craft stores and sometimes at Walmart. I just hung a spoon rest in my kitchen with a tab top and E-6000 on it. Very Strong stuff.
You can make items using soda tabs, sell them and give a large percentage to the Ronald McDonald House or other children's charities.
Using soda pop tabs for crafting is fun & easy.
These can be used as "buckles" for any craft project. Have Fun!
How clever! Those would be great for scrapbook pages or homemade greeting cards.
I have used them in cardmaking, but never thought of embossing them. Thanks for a great idea.
When you need something to use as a hanger for one of your craft items, just hot glue soda pop tabs to the back of your craft. Use one or two tabs depending on the width and weight of your artwork.
If you make homemade jar candles as I do, you can use pop tabs as a weight for your wicks. If you drink pop they are pretty much free!
I recently went on a volunteer trip to Jamaica to work at schools in areas with extreme poverty. One of the students at the school made this super-adorable bracelet using only soda can tabs and a shoelace.
I wanted to make a soda can tab belt. But then I was thinking, what should I put on them so they won't rust?
I would like to make a soda can tabs belt....require a pattern, model how to do. Thank you...in french would be even better...

I was wondering how to make a soda pop tab bag/wallet. I've seen them but they are really expensive, and I have alot of tabs. Can you give me instructions of a pattern?
I was wondering what i could do with all the soda can tabs my family has. I decided a belt and/or a purse would be cool if it was made out of them. Does anyone have any idea where I
could find out how to make them? Thanks for all your help!
here's another sight for a belt:
The rumor about Ronald McDonald house using these is just that - a rumor. It's on Snopes.com
What can I do with pop can tabs? I have around 200 pop can tabs that I saved from soda cans and I don't know what to do with them.

I saw on TV news last night a young girl made a Prom dress from Pop tabs. It was well made and looked great. But alas, there were no directions on how she made the Pop tab dress.
If you have a person in your house who makes wood wall plaques these tabs can be attached to the back to hang on the wall.
