Milk Carton Ring Tabs ... Do You Have a Suggestion?

Milk Carton Ring Tabs ...  Do You Have a Suggestion?

I've been saving milk carton ring tabs for over a year now.  Why?  Because I know ... one can make things from them.  What?

That's what I'm asking ... what?  I've seen where one can make fun rings to wear with all kinds of materials.  One could make the little thimble-sized pin cushions ... just stick it on your finger to put pins in when sewing.

I would like to find something 'more intricate ... more special' to make with my ring tabs.  Something that ... makes it worth saving them for this long!

If you have any suggestions ... tips, ideas ... would you share them with me?  I have one ring tab sitting here ... staring at it ever so often ... so far ... nothing comes to my mind.

Is it because 'nothing' can be made from them?  Have I wasted my time ... saving ring tabs?

I saw some years ago ... online ... where a woman was wanting all the ring tabs she could get.  I never did read what she did with them ... I think I may have asked, getting no answer.  Maybe it was a jealousy-guarded secret?

I would share what I came up with ... I need to be inspired by the Ring Tab Fairy!  Are you the Ring Tab Fairy?  If so, let me know ... if I use your idea I will put you on my blog ... share photos of what I made from your idea.

I look forward to being inspired!  Tell me what you'd make with your milk carton ring tabs.

  1. Right now the only thing I could come up with is Christmas ornaments. You could paint them various colors or just use as white for maybe snow background or white Christmas tree? I will think on this some more and get back with you. Love, Ms. Nancy
