Using Bottle Caps

Bottle Caps and scrapbooking? You bet! Bottle caps create fun, colorful and dimensional layouts.

You can use bottle caps just they way they are if you like lumpy embellishments. Attach them with foam adhesive or pop dots.

Or you can flatten them! Use a rubber mallet to pound flat or you can even use your Sizzix, wizard, cuttlebug machines with converter! Just slide the bottle caps under the converter just like you were going to make a cut and *Squish* they flatten perfectly!

Uses for Bottle Caps:
*Use as tags (you can even thread fiber or ribbon through them by punching a hole with your hole punch/ cropadile!)
*Use for titles
*You can stamp letters or other images onto your bottle cap (use an ink such as Stayz-On that will work with metal)
*Use as deco circles
*Use as mini frames for small cropped photos
*Put a photo inside and then put some Liquid Glass/Glossy Accents over the top to seal and create a dimensional photo
*Create mini "bottle cap scrapbooks"
*Heat emboss
*Use rub-ons or stickers to decorate them
*Paint them!
*Cover them with fabric or patterned paper
*Collage or Alter them

Can you imagine your pages, new flower look, titles, tags for a "pop" scrapbook page, the ideas are endless, would love to see your creativity and ideas - please share!

Would love to hear from you - share some love!
