Project for Beer Caps

I usually throw a lot of parties during the winter months and as a result I collect a lot of bottle caps.  To make a few extra bucks, I use the beer bottle caps to make magnets to sell in the bakery.   Last year I made about 75 caps thinking that I would just try to sell them and hope for the best.  Little did I know that they would be a hot seller.  At just $.99, they were a great souvenir for kids. Don’t worry parents, by the time the caps are finished you can’t see any alcohol advertisement to expose to the little ones.

It’s so simple.  Just use a circle cutter (mine is Martha Stewart brand of course) to cut out a one inch circle of any desirable scrapbook paper that suits your fancy.  Then you can decorate the paper cut-out with any sticker you want.  I like to use a sticker that will give dimension to the cap.  After you have the cap all set to the way you want it, place them on a non-stick surface like parchment paper (I even used a cut ziploc bag.  Then, pour the clear resin into each bottle cap (I use Clear Castin’ Easy Cast that you can find at any Michael’s store) and let it set overnight.  Then all you need to do is to hot glue a round magnet to the back of each cap.  You’re creation is complete!
