bottlecaps

when i had asked a couple of months ago what was the one MR product you wanted to learn more about, i was suprised to hear you all say (or 70% of you) our bottlecaps! these are our mega bottlecaps - (texas sized) - as they are close to 2" in diameter.

now of course if you want to put them on a LO, you have to flatten them but one of the reasons we made them is to appeal to all the altered artists out there. there is SO MUCH you can do with these caps.

here is a short list:

  • fridge magnets
  • ornaments
  • advent calendar (be sure to sign up for our consumer newsletter b/c our next issue will feature a knock your socks off advent calendar using our empty tins and bottlecaps)
  • keychains (drill a hole up top)
  • luggage ID (i have one on mine)

ali edwards did some amazing things with them on her blog and i know people are having a hard time finding them so in the spirit of giving, i am going to RAK 2 sets away (not in the tins).

all you have to do is post here that you want them. that's all. begging helps. pleading helps too (LOL).

and for some inspiration, here are some things i did for my fridge with them:






so win yourself a set - just post in the next 48 hours for your chance!

good luck!

Love the bottle caps and LOVE LOVE LOVE the idea of making ornaments with them. I'm getting a vision right now! So, normally I don't beg, but please, please, please pick me!! I'd love to get a head start on embellishing them all up for the holidays. Plus, I just HAVE to see these puppies in person!! 2" bottlecaps - NO WAY! Now that's big! So as my daughters says "Me, me, me, pick me!!"

Caroline, please pick me!!!!:) I would love them, as I've started to "spread my embelishment wings" & they would inspire me greatly.
I'm begging all the way from Saskatchewan Canada:) I've got a few ideas for them that I would love to see come to life:)

Count me in as a beggar from BC!! I was thinking about making a set of magnets for Ethan's teacher to use in the classroom. It would be totally fun to fill them with letters and numbers and other "educational" goodies!! What fun!!

Now I want to go play with my bottle caps, I think I need some creative curtain tie backs for my scraproom, that and some chips should do the trick.

I have been searching high and low for these bottle caps!!! I think they are amazing and so versatile! I have been so disappointed not to be able to get my hands on them...sold out everywhere. That is a sign of an amzing product as is everything you guys make! Pick me because I may have to join a MR bottlecapless upport group if you don't! LOL
