Use for the pop tops on your soda cans 6/12/17

I just know you are going to say "Why didn't I think of that" when you see this post. Because that is what I said when I saw it on Pinterest. The post was from

We are always trying to get the latest and greatest scrapbooking embellishment or tool, when all we need to do is look around the home. Look at this, something as simple as the pop tops from your soda can. Most of us have soda cans at home, in fact I'm sure there are some in your recycling bin (or trash can...shame on me) right now.

This is your starting point. Remove the pop top. Notice how the (2) on the left of the photo are lifted ? That is because this is where the pop top was connected to the can and you need to flatten it out, like the one on the right side of the photo.

This is easily done with a pair of pliers.

Now that you have the tab ready, start adding stuff to it.

Wasn't that super easy !!!!!  So run in there and grab those cans and remove the pop top. It's not difficult. Just bend them back and forth a couple of times and they will pop right off.

You could add a brad to the smaller hole,  then run a ribbon through (2) of them and use it as a closure of your album or for a page in your album.
Take a look at these (2) photos again

Look at the tab on the left. There is no metal on the section that is attached to the can. Now look at the one on the right. The metal is still on it. All three of these came from Coke Zero, so it has thing to do with the can its self. It all depends on how the metal breaks off. If you want to add a brad, as I suggested above, you are going to need (2) of the pop tops with the hole in the center. Of course you can use metal cutters and remove that piece entirely. Then you will need a large brad to cover the hole.

That's it for now. Happy Scrapping !!!!
