One of may favorite classes I held recently was a Bottlecap necklace class. Each person attending received
a container of bottlecaps
a necklace (purchased from Oriental Express)
a bottle of Crystal Effects
We flattened the bottlecaps using the Big Shot, the cutting pads, the platform with all tabs opened, and a piece of thick cardboard. One necklace uses a flattened bottlecap, and the other left the bottlecap in its original shape.
Next we made all kinds of inserts to place inside the necklace. The have a punched out circle from a magnet sheet on the back so they can be easily changed out according to a person's mood.
final step is to add Crystal Effects to the top of each design. I found I was heavy handed with the first inserts I placed the crystal effects on and all I needed was a little bit of liquid. I just had to make sure that I extended it out to the edges of the insert.
It was great fun. I used stamping, pieces of designer paper and jewels. I put the bling on after everything was dry. One of my favorite designs is the crown. When I wear it I say I am the Queen of Stamping.
It's not too late to order your set of bottlecaps.
