Accomplishment #6: Pop Tab Belt

A couple of months ago, my super-crafty sister, Sherri, taught my first-grader how to make pop tab bracelets (though you may call them "Bella Bracelets," as our dear Ms. Kristen Stewart, of "Twilight" fame, has taken quite a shine to them).

My little girl and I made bracelets -- lots of them -- over Christmas Break.

And, when my sister-in-law saw the bracelets, she remarked that it would be cool to use the pop tabs to make a belt. Her husband agreed.

So, for my brother-in-law's birthday, we made him his very own pop tab belt. It took about three hours, and we used 6+ yards of suede lacing and over 100 pop tabs.

Word on the street is that my bro-in-law has worn the belt to work several times over the past few weeks. My little girl is thrilled.


  1. SO cute!! I havent seen those yet...but then again im always the last to know about the upcoming fashions haha! I love the belt idea! You guys are so creative!

  2. You and Sherri ate both crafty! Very cool!

  3. Ah, thanks for the shout out! Speaking from experience, that is an accomplishment! Love ya.
