everything *IS* bigger in TX

and that is the truth. i have lived here for over 8 years and things are bigger here but i love love love it. deb and i were thinking about TX and mega sized when we designed our new bottle caps. they are over 2" in diameter which is twice the size of the caps you see elsewhere today - i put a 1" one next to the one i used to show you the relative size.

people at CHA were asking 3 things:

1. can you flatten them like other caps?
2. what can you make with them?
3. when can i get them?

well i hope to answer all 3 here.

1. can you flatten them?

we had a customer try with a sizzix at the show and they couldn't do it flat so i tried it when i got home. i used a rubber mallet and firmly pounded the bottle cap with equal force in the middle and it did flatten - since it is bigger, you just need to be more careful in how you flatten them. pressure needs to be applied equally according to the laws of physics! *wink*

2. what can you make with them?

as you can see here, i made an accent with them and with MR ribbon and MR chipboard. i also have plans for a crazy cool mini album but need to work on that this weekend. one customer also mentioned you could probably make peanut butter cups in there! very cool idea! i also envision magnets, jewelry and flower centers.

3. when can i get them?

we had an amazing show so most of these will ship late aug, early sept. orders now won't ship til mid-sept.
