Supplies you'll need....
Thin chipboard (can also be recycled cereal/food box)
1" Circle Punch (optional...but most helpful)..or circle Template
Angie's Nest Paper Imagery Design Collage Sheet #628 (or other images you like)
Glue (I used Fabri-Tac)
Glue Stick (HEE HEE I ordered my sheet #628 as a sticker sheet)
Black Sharpie (optional)
Packing Tape Or Diamond Glaze, etc.
Start with a new uncrimped bottlecap. There are many places on the internet that sell them.
Bang the bottle cap a few times on each side with the rubber mallet (you can also use a regular hammer...but made scuff your bottle cap) on a hard surface. I've heard of some people doing this on concrete but I find that a cutting mat or block of wood works just fine. This will flattened the bottlecap and cause the edges to curl under.
Use the hole punch to punch out your image and a chipboard circle.
Glue circle image on top of the chipboard circle. Apply clear packing tape to the top of the image and smooth. Trim the packing tape.
Edge the circle image with a black sharpie for nice finished edges. With a strong glue (fabri-Tac, all purpose white glue, etc), glue the image into the bottle cap.
Add a Jumpring. Your charm is now ready to hang anywhere.
A second option it to NOT cover your image in packing tape...but add a clear glossy layer of Diamond Glaze (or similar clear demensional sealer/glaze)
With a pin you can pop any bubbles and spread the glaze to the edges. Set aside to dry until clear. The add your jumpring.
Here are two necklaces I made with my finish charms. The first will go to my PID Mingle Partner and the second could be yours....
