If you get a photo frame and there is no hook on the back, using a screw attach the Coke tab to the back of your frame. Then hang your picture!

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.

Supplies:

Directions:

  1. You will first coat the soda tab with the embossing ink (I do the fronts only.)

  2. Using the tweezers, dip the soda tab into the embossing color of choice.

  3. Hold the soda tab with tweezers and heat the tab with the heating embossing tool until powder is melted. Be VERY CAREFUL, it will be HOT! You will need to repeat these steps 2 or 3 times for a good coating.

These can be used as "buckles" for any craft project. Have Fun!

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.

Pop can tab.

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 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.

I am wondering if there is anything out there that's cheap to put on pop tabs so they won't rust. I found a way to make a belt and a purse out of them. But I just know they'll rust.
