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.
