Bottle Cap Fever

First, my disclaimer: These photos are not great because I forgot to take them during the day and then I was forced to use good old artificial light. Not a great thing for quality photos.

When Geocaching, the rule is if you take something, you must leave something behind....but what? I got this idea to make magnets using bottle caps and so we started saving all the bottle caps.

When this jar was full, we started our project. (No, we didn't drink all those beverages on our own)

Then I got the idea to make sets of magnets to give as gifts. For these I cut photographs using a jagged circle punch (no idea what it is really called), used glue to adhere them to the caps and finished them off with these epoxy stickers.

Glue magnets to the backs and you're done.

They do sell plain bottle caps so you don't have to save your own, but I like the eclectic look of all the different caps. I think it adds some character.

I'm going to get some better pics during the day and post later in the week.

I love these...especially the ones with photos on them. I'm thinking they would make great Christmas gifts. Thanks for the idea!
