Soda Can Tab Belt

Convert those small pesky little soda can tabs into a belt!

by Craftbits (Shellie Wilson)

What you need

Soda can tabs (112 makes a 35 inch belt)
1 cm wide Ribbon or cord

Instructions

Cut the cord into 2 lengths they should be about 10 ft long each. Tie the two cords together about 8 inch in from the ends.

Step 1:
Thread the cords through each hold of one tab. Thread on a second tab so it overlaps the 1st tab.
Push the cord back through the holes of the second tab and the holds of the first tab. As shown in the picture below.

Step 2-3:
Turn it over and cross over the cords. Thread the cords (now crossed over) through a third tab.
Push the cord back through the holes of the third tab and the holes in the second tab.

Keep using this pattern until you have a belt big enough for your waist and just knot it when you get to the end. Leave enough cord or ribbon to tie the belt and cut off any remaining cord.
