First, the soda tabs had a sharp edge where they were torn off from the can. It was too hard for us to cut them off, so instead Sak bent it back flat.
First, place some tape sticky side up.
To continue the chain, first line up another tab. Pull both ribbons down through the holes created by the overlapped tabs.
|This one uses 120 tabs, a wee bit short. The next one will be longer!|
Fun! Save all your soda tabs! You could make a funky bracelet or garland or bandoleer or something with this weave even if you don't want a lei. I'm glad my mom had all the tabs though - we don't definitely don't drink enough soda on our own :P
Have you done any soda tab crafts? I remember painting them with nail polish and making bookmarks from them in junior high!
