A Soda Pop Tab Purse?

I can't believe it. I saw this lady at work wearing a purse made out of soda pop tab. I immediately came up to her and asked where she got it. It's the coolest thing I've ever seen in a long time. I got to chat more with the lady during my lunch break and I was able to look at her purse and take photos lol. She was nice enough to let me ^_^


This is some heavy duty purse. It looks like a lot of time was spent in making this.
The lady said that a friend of hers from Mexico made it a long time ago. She bought it for 50 bucks. On the other hand, her friend doesn't make them anymore because they were too time consuming. That sucks coz i wanted one so bad. We still exchanged contact number just in case her friend decides to make another one.



She let me take a photo of her stuff lol. You can fit a lot of stuff inside.
So what do you guys think? Its cool right?

  3. Oh wow.

    If I drank soda regularly enough to collect that many tabs, I would love to do something like this. Years ago I tried saving up to make a soda tab bracelet but I never did.

  8. cool idea and I've seen it around but they're pricey! I personally collect soda can tabs (boyfriend's collection actually) in hope to have them recycled. The pay out is apparently quite good! The recycled material is used to make prosthetic limbs, from what I heard.

  12. That's amazing! I have seen them made from bottle tops (the metal tops from glass bottles) but never from tabs. Wow, that really must take forever to make, but so worth it! I love how you asked her if you could take pics. :)
