Bottle Cap Jewelry



Have you seen these. I should have posted the original one that I copied. I'd like to say they were really easy, but not that easy. They are just bottle caps that can be purchased online. I had some that I bought for scrapbooking ages ago and never used them. I found the plastic necklaces at Joanne's on sale. The original had interchangeable buttons held on by magnets. I made these for my grandkids and choose to glue them in with a hot glue gun. There is scapbook paper lining the cap. You can use material as well. You can buy the bottle caps with the holes already punched in, I think, Mine weren't and that was the hard part. I just used a paper punch as I forgot all about my Cropadile (?) scrapbooking tool. You need little jump ring as well. Make sure they are big enough. Mine were a little bit small. I used buttons and whacked off the back. The magnets used on the original were teeny tiny ones. I bought some and they were about $1 each. I hope you can figure this out, I am lousey at explaining how to make something. They are very cute on little kids. I hadn't seen one for a boy but adapted this for my "Little Fella." His had three little buttons.
Don't forget to leave a comment on my giveaway post...........thanks.

Awww, those are SOOOO cute! Any grandchild would love one of them!
I'm bad at explaining directions, too. It's really clear in my head, though!

Let me know when you're in CO again and we'll meet up someplace.

Snow tonight....but not alot.

Hugs,
Jan

Those are so cute..it seems that there would be no end to what you could add to them, maybe even seasonal things would be fun too.
