making bottlecap magnets
Have you ever seen those cute bottlecap magnets and wondered how to make them? It is so easy... today I am going to show you how. Start with plain bottlecaps. I bought mine at Archiver's but I think you can get them much cheaper if you buy in bulk. Start by punching out 1 inch circles out of scrapbook paper.
Once you have your images punched, put a little bit of glossy accents http://www.rangerink.com/products/prod_inkssentials_glossy.htm
Put the image on top of the glossy accents, then add a layer of glossy accents on top. Let them dry overnight.
Once they are dry you can add your magnet to the back with a little hot glue.
You are done... display on a magnet board, your back door, anything magnetic. Fun, right?
Come back tomorrow and see the magnet boards I made to go with them!
