Jewelry Making

Who Gives a Hoot

Hi

How are you my crafty peeps?  I hope everyone well!  I have been on a jewelry kick.  Take a look remember the bottle cap earrings I made in the Custom Happy Birthday Mya.

Here is a photo tutorial, its really easy.

Supplies-Bent and chain nose pliers, E6000 glue, bottlecaps, 1 inch hole punch (optional) and Bottlecap Image.

I distressed the edges of my images with Tim Holtz Distress inks

One thing to pay attention to these images were not formatted, which was sort of a a pain…..sorta.  It does give you the flexibility to use in other formats.  I do not like to format my images I prefer already sized, they didn’t seem to be as perfect so I distressed the edges.

Non Flat and Flat Caps

Please not that I purchased flattened bottlecaps.  If you purchase non flattend you will need to flatten them see video HERE.  I do not need any extra tools so its worth it to have someone else bear the heck out of them for me :).  If you use bottlecaps from used bottles (hooch I me an) don’t forget to remove the lining here is a tute HERE.

I put my holes in first…no reason I just do.  Use your Euro tool and pierce on the back side of bottle caps its easier.  This pic shows the front side though…lesson learned.

Add Glue/Adhesive to bottle caps insides.  Try and use a quick drying glue of your choice.

Insert Images press firmly
