Pink Saturday: Soft-Drink Tab Belt

Happy Pink Saturday to one and all. You can find out who's posting PINK today over on Beverly's Blog, How Sweet the Sound.
First of all, let's take a moment to show our support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Here's a picture I snapped at Winn Dixie. Thank you Folger's coffee!
Now for my feature presentation!

What can you do with some pretty pink beads and some soft-drink pull tabs?



You can make a gorgeous belt for your grand-daughter!

Aren't you smart! That looks like it'd be a pretty necklace too. Happy Pink Saturday!

How clever that belt is. It's amazing what can be done with almost nothing and a lot of imagination.

WELL.....!!!!!! this is waaaaay too cool ! So so cute..

Beverly said...

Well, that is the cutest thing. What a clever idea!

Isn't it wonderful how companies are stepping up to support breast cancer research? I know it is a marketing tool, too, but it is a sign that they are willing to put dollars to a good cause.

Happy Pink Saturday, Faith.

Thank you for sharing pink Saturday. Did you make that belt? That is soooo neat. Can you do a tutorial? I'd love to know how to make one also.
Have a lovely fall day.

Oh! I can't EVEN believe how cute that is! And to think...pull tabs and beads. Very cute!
Thanks for visiting me today - I was running late to get the pups to the groomers, so my post was a wee bit late. And thank you for supporting the breast cancer October (and all year!) As a survivor, I want to say a special "thanks"!

Neabear said...

Thank you for visiting my blog. Perhaps you have already started a new thing with your granddaughter having your name for a middle name. I think it is pretty. Also this is an awesome craft idea. I have been saving my tabs from different things and didn't know what I was going to do with them. Now I have an idea. Still need a lot more tabs though.

Virginia said...

Wow! How clever.
Happy Pink Saturday!
Blessings, Virginia
