Bottle Cap Fridge Flair


So I actually made a bunch of these in the Christmas variety for Christmas presents this year and then I realized that I didn't keep any for myself and I think they are really cool so I made myself some Valentine's Day! I need something to pin up all of those Valentines on my fridge.

These are very simple to make and you only need a few materials: ModPodge 3Dimensional Magic, Bottlecaps, Magnets, Paper, and glue.

Ok. So cut out little circles to fit inside of the bottlecaps. I used my Cricut, but you could also use a punch to get the perfect circles as well. After your circles are cut out, hot glue the paper circles to the inside of your bottle-caps (I got my bottle-caps from beer that I drank... lots and lots of beer). But gluing the circle to the inside of your bottle-caps you are making sure that your circles won't float/move when you add the ModPodge.




Once the circles are all glues inside your bottle-caps, add the ModPodge 3Dimensional Magic to the bottle caps. Fill 'em up!





Ok. Now you have to be patient and wait for this to try. It takes about 6 hours to get firm. When they are ready to go, they will look like this!
Once the bottle-caps are dry, you can attach your magnets. Now, you can definitely use hot glue to do this but I have noticed in the past that sometimes the hot glue doesn't hold the magnets as firmly as Tacky Glue. Thus, I recommend putting your magnets on with the Tacky Glue.
Let the glue set on the back of the magnet and there you go! You just made yourself some new fridge flair!

These look so pretty I thought I would try them. But I hot glued the 1" punch to the bottom , then filled the cap with Mod Podge and this was at 5:oo pm at 6:am the next morning the caps are still white. I thought they would turn clear after 6 hours did I use the wrong Mod Podge? Sherrie
