What I Made
I made a pop tab bracelet, as outlined in the guide.
How I Made it
I used 23 pop tabs and black and white ribbon. I did end up cutting myself on a pop tab I forgot to file down, though, which was unfortunate.
I also took the author's suggestion and taped the ends, which helped A LOT.
Tips and Tricks
- File down the tabs BEFORE you start working
- Try the bracelet on every few tabs to see how well it fits and how many more tabs you'll need, so you don't get too many.
Rain Blanken, DIY Fashion Guide, says:HxrCORE, this looks awesome. Black & white is a good idea, because then you can wear it with most anything.
I like the idea of filing down the tabs before starting. You can also turn the inside tabs around so that it is smooth on both sides when you wear it.
The bracelet I made in the tutorial actually lost a bit of the tape on the ribbon last week and started to unravel. Since then, I tied the ends in knots. Thanks for sharing!
