Pop Tab Baubles ~ Compact Mirror Recycle [HOW-TO]

I love using mirrors in decorating and recycling & reusing things for decor. For this project, my supplies cost me next to nothing (the glass gems were bought for $1 a bag at Dollar Tree), the compact mirror I saved, pop tabs are plentiful and I already had the ribbon scrap and glue.
Step by step HOW-TO + detailed pics @ the link below! : )
Pop Tab Baubles ~ Compact Mirror Recycle

20 inch Ribbon (approx)
20 Pop Tabs
1 Compact Mirror
20 Glass Gems
FIRST STEPS...detailed images at blog link down below... :)
Glue gems to the top side of the tabs, gluing them to the "D" portion of the tab ring (and not the "O" shaped end). I used E6000 tube glue for this project and it works well, provided you allow each layer time to dry.
Position the remaining portion of the tabs under the lip of the compact mirror's edge. When it's how you like, remove one at a time and put a dab of glue on the tab and return it to it's position in the circle. Do this all around, and let it sit. You might want to come back every 5-10 minutes and carefully shift the mirror (so it doesn't stick to your surface, I use paper) but allows the tabs to remain in position to dry.
