Martha Stewart Countdown #61 Bottle-Cap Magnets

Well Well Well…. What shall we talk about today? I will show you step by step how to turn a dingy old bottle cap into a cute and chic magnet for your ice box. Some of the Ingredients you will need are:

1-inch circular craft punch
Craft glue
Bottle caps
Clear casting resin
Contact cement
Small magnets or thumbtacks
  
Some of the ingredients shown above~

If you don’t have a stamp to cut your circle you can use a quarter as a template.
When you find a picture you love get a quarter and place it on top of the image. Gently cut around the quarter with scissors or a razor blade. Either one works great.

Next step: You will place the peel n stick magnet on the bottom of each bottle cap.

Turn the bottle caps upside down now and we will prepare for the next step. You will take the pieces that you cut out of the magazines and glue them inside of the bottle cap.
You will take the picture you cut out of the magazine and squirt  glue onto the back of it. After you apply the glue you will simply place the piece of paper inside the bottle cap. Take your finger and press to make sure the paper is firmly touching the bottom of bottle cap.

Above is what they will look like with just the pictures in the bottle caps.
CUTE HUH~~

Next you will get your Polyurethane and take a spoonful of it and carefully pour it into the top of bottle cap. You want to fill it all the way to the top. Mine is a darker shade because I wanted them to look kinda old and antique. You can get clear if you want the images to show up more clearly.

Once poured and dried this is what they look like.

I posted the picture above to show you that if you have any air pockets after you fill the bottle caps up and you don’t pop them, this is what will happen. I actually like them more like this but it can be prevented~

Tadahhhh~~~ This is how they look when completed! They are so cute and it’s a great way to personalize as gifts! I know I would absolutely LOVE getting a couple of these for Christmas~~
Going to bed early for the first time in MONTHS… For real you will NOT see me creeping in a little bit.. Love each and every one of my jaderbugs!
