DIY pop can tab bracelet

Pop Can Tabs for Bracelet

I was at a craft store over the weekend, and I saw a woman with a purse made out of pop can tabs.

I thought the idea was interesting, so I went on YouTube to find some tutorials on pop can tab projects.

I did not necessarily want to make a purse out of pop can tabs, but I found a video posted by chenii95 that demonstrates how to make a bracelet.

You will need:

  • about 25 pop can tabs (give or take a few for your wrist size)
  • approximately 3 feet of elastic jewelery cording
  • scissors
  • ribbon or beading if desired

I just thought this was a cool project idea that was creative and recycles pop can tabs.

DIY custom image jewelry

Custom Image Jewelry

Creating custom image jewelry has become an easier process with all the options you can find at craft stores now.

My question is, where were all these bezels when I wanted them years ago?

Dream {a Little} BIGGER has posted steps to creating these unique, custom made jewelry items.

They suggest using a glass cabochon (which will magnify the image and supply some dimension to the picture) with a matching-sized bezel.

I am apparently cheap, because I recommend using Mod Podge Dimensional Magic to cover the front of the image.

This will seal in your image, and give it some dimension as well.
