Pop Tabs and Ribbon Craft

I thought I would share this with everyone... a great little craft to do over the summer. Different colored ribbons could be used too! :)

 Instructions: Lace the ribbon through both holes on the pop taps. Overlap the pop taps as you go. You start by going through the first hole and bringing the ribbon up the second pop tap and at the same time thread it into the next pop tab. Do the top of the tabs and then turn and do the bottoms the same way.
