Remember the fun of collecting soda pop tabs from cans all summer so you could make pop tab crafts and trade them with your friends? Well, Darice has a fun line of soda pop inspired jewelry called Pop Stop — supplies made in brightly colored plastic with easy-snap jump rings. I played around with some plastic pop tabs and came up with this quick and easy colorful bracelet that any tween could make and love.

Step two. Pinch the first three pop tabs together while you add three more pop tabs to the jump ring, this time threading the jump ring through the larger open hole on the pop tabs. Snap the jump ring closed.
Step three. Add another small jump ring to the group of three tabs and repeat the process.
Step four. When you have a line of six pop tab links, add a large jump ring to attach the ends of the bracelet together.
Note: if you have larger wrists, you can add an extra jump ring to customize the fit. If you have smaller wrists, remove one of the pop tab links and adjust fit with a jump ring if needed.
