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!

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!

It looks like aluminum recycling for cans runs around 25 cents a pound in most places in the U.S. You would need to check with your local recycler but I would say it is worth no more than $10 that way.

It's possible that you may be able to sell them to a crafter online. There are a bunch of lots for sale and the prices are all over the place. Someone would have to pay for the shipping though, and that would cut into what someone would be willing to pay.

Good luck and let us know what they are worth when you find out.

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 collect the tabs to donate to Ronald McDonald House. The aluminum content is very valuable, more than the cans (although I recycle those).

Please find some other item to use for crafts and donate the tabs for a really good cause.
