For today's tip I thought I would encourage you to recycle bottle caps. With Summer in full swing we are all probably coming across our share of bottles so why not put them to good use in our crafting projects.
Here are several ways you can use them:
1-As a pendant
2-As a magnet (for the fridge or a message board)
3-As an accent on your scrap pages or cards
4-As charms on a bracelet by using a crop-a-dile to put holes on each side of the caps,stringing them with cool jewelry cord, hemp or ribbon.
5-As a place to stick numbers on to make a unique clock with dimension
To do any of the above you can :
1- Keep them as they are
2- Paint them
3- Flatten them out
4- Fill the inside with a button, an image off the computer sized to fit then cut & adhered in the center, or with a monogram sticker, etc...
5- Use a circle punch on photos & insert them in the center of the caps.
I hope I jump started your thinking "caps"!
Now next time you see bottle caps you may think of them in a different light & use them in your crafty creations.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful week.
