flip top chain-maille

My oldest daughter has started a project with flip top tabs making a type of chain-maille.  I have made chain-maille in the past and I am familiar with this type of  thing so I posted on face book that she was wanting tabs.  She has 108 tabs so far but it will probably take her a few thousand to make what she wants to make.
She has three styles of tabs at the moment but hopes to get more and more colors too.  Her goal is to make  a corset and skirt a female version of costume chain-maille.  There is this cool website all about this type of stuff check it out it is fun to see what can be made out of through away stuff.

For fun I may make some as I really like this pattern for a corset that the blog above has for sale.

There are several ways of doing this type of maille.  My daughter is doing a cut in the tabs.  But there is also like the blog above where you weave them together and I have also seen where you use chain-maille links to hold the tabs together and i have seen them crocheted together too.  Not sure which way I like the most but I lean towards  links and weaving.  I believe they are stronger but my daughter wants instant gratification so she is doing it the quicker easier way but I believe it is the weaker way as well.  Here is a video for the way my daughter is doing hers but she did not learn from this video.  Warning this girl annoys me by saying so all the time you are warned.  But the general idea is there for basic maille but you could make a 1 by 4 maille as well with pop tabs
