pull-tab
When I was searching yesterday for images to use for my post about pull-tabs, I was surprised by how many websites there are devoted to finding other uses for the little aluminum pull-tabs, both the old-style ones and the more modern one-piece tabs. There are so many of these and they’re so inventive I thought I’d share a few of them. This is just the tip of the iceberg, there’s a whole world of DIY, recycling and craft people who are finding amazing ways to use the discarded pull-tabs. So here we are, from head to toe:

Here’s a kid’s hat and shirt, and there are lots more at the wonderfully named Art of Tabistry.

How about a dress made entirely of pull-tabs? Here’s one posted atRecyclart.

And let’s not forget the shoes, shown here, and you can see another pair at This Next.

tabs-armor
Or if you want to be covered head to knee, here’s an entire suit of pull-tab armor, from Geekologie.

And don’t forget to accessorize with this fetching purse, also from This Next.

tabs-chair
In case you get tired wearing all that heavy metal, here’s a pull tab chair for you to sit down and rest made by Studio G.

I can’t say I’d actually wear any of them, but they impressive nonetheless. Enjoy.
