Bottlecaps!

My new mini obsession...bottlecaps! I saw some Hello Kitty bottlecap jewelry on Etsy and thought I just had to try it out. I ordered some colored bottlecaps and have had them for a few months now. Haven't taken the plunge because I didn't want to make too much noise with a hammer trying to flatten the caps. Plus, I wasn't sure how "even" the edges would come out using a hammer.

The wait is finally over since I got my No More Shim Embossing Mat! It made flattening these caps a breeze!!! Below is a video on how easy it is to flatten bottlecaps with a Big Shot or Cuttlebug.

Once the caps were flattened, I used my HK PSA stamps and a 1" circle punch to create different centers. Add a magnet to the back and done!

We'll be doing a FREE Demo next weekend, Saturday 8/20 from 10:30am - 12pm

Looks like lots of fun. The bottle caps are really cute and make such fun magnets. I hope I can drop by at least for a little bit for the demo.
