Bottle Cap Necklaces (or Magnets)




Supplies


One inch circle punch (Hobby Lobby OR Creative Memories)

Scrapbook Paper

Mod Podge

Embellishments- cross stickers, bling letters, flowers, etc.

E-6000

Small Magnets (Joann's or http://www.bottlecapco.com/)

Enviro-Tex Lite or Triple Thick (Hobby Lobby) or Aileen's Paper Glaze (Michael's)

Black, queen size trouser socks (Dollar Tree, Wal-Mart)

Small washers (Lowe's, Wal-Mart)


Directions

1. With a one inch circle punch , you can punch out a picture, scrap book paper, or any other clip art you want to print--the one inch diameter from the punch fits perfectly in the bottom of the cap! Use Mod Podge to glue to bottom of cap.

2. Add any embellishments you want. Be sure they are all mod podged or stuck on there well.

3. Using E-6000, glue a small magnet to the back of the bottle cap.

4. Place your bottle cap in a wax-paper lined cookie sheet.

5. Mix up a small amount of Enviro-Tex Lite--this is a resin that will dry hard and clear, and using a medicine dropper, pour a bit of the resin into your bottle cap. You can also use Diamond Glaze or Aileen's Paper Glaze or Triple Thickto add a clear coat into your bottle caps.

6. Cut up black trouser socks into strips, and stretch. Once stretched a bit they will curl up nicely to hide bad cutting..... loop a small washer into the center of your black strip, and you'll have the choker look. OR, purchase black leather cord to give you a longer length.

7. You can skip the necklace part and just use these for magnets. OR, skip the magnet and use them on your scrapbook pages!!!!
