More Pop Top Tab Bracelets

Yesterday I made bracelets with my 15 year old Grand Daughter. She loves these bracelets so I was thinking that maybe we could try putting some beads on one. I have a variety of colors in the pony beads which I thought would work with the larger holes that they have. Purple is one of her favorite colors so this is what we made.
To make these bracelets with the beads, simply follow the instructions given in the links of my previous post.

The only change in the instructions would be to add the bead as in the third photo below. Easy!!
We were also thinking that different colors of elastic cording would be pretty to use on these....but where can we find the colored elastic cording? I really would love to find it in black and colors.
Anyone know?

Your creations are wonderful.Thanks for sharing them and I'm sure your Grandaughter is the hit of her friends cause they are so unique! I noticed that crushed pineapple cans have a blue edge so they would be good too. I'm saving all of them. I'll watch for colored cord. With 2 cats I'm getting quite a few and can't wait to make one!
