As I promised: Bottle cap Magnets and Gift Set

Here is my tutorial that I promised from this weekends VC Rocks Blog Hop.  I hope you enjoy and have fun making your own.

Supplies I used:

Cardstock: Island Indigo, Pool Party all from the New 2011-2012 Catalog
DSP: Paisley Petals ( from the new 2011-2012 Catalog)
Punches: 2-3/8 Scallop Circle, 1-3/4 Circle, 1-3/8 Circle, 1” Circle, ¾ “and the
New Lace Ribbon Border Punch (from the new 2011-2012 catalog)
Ribbon: Whisper White Satin Ribbon (inked to match using pool party)
Accessories: see through tin, bottle caps, magnets, Crystal Effects and Rhinestones

Assemble each magnet. The punched out circles from dsp, or anything you stamp. (On mine I punched out the images of the flowers and leaves from the new DSP Paisley Petals for the end magnets and stamped and colored the center one).

Adhere the punched piece into the bottle cap (with Snail Adhesive or Sticky Strip) just to hold it in place.  (Note: It is important that the piece is secure because when the Crystal Effects is poured in, the piece will "float" otherwise.)

Pour Crystal Effects into the bottle cap on top of the image.

Allow the pieces to to dryabout ten minutes or until it's beginning to appear clear. Then apply a Rhinestone to the piece. Literally "drop" it onto the Crystal Effects so that it doesn't sink or get covered up by the liquid.

Allow the bottlecaps to dry at least overnight and be sure that they are placed on a level surface so the liquid dries evenly.

Inside directions:

Cut the strips of cardstock and DSP to go inside the tin. Bottom layer is 5-1/4 x 3-1/2,  for the next layer I used the reverse side of the DSP and cut it 5-1/4 x 1-1/4. I adhered the pieces together, then I rounded the edges of the bottom piece and glued it to the bottom of my tin.

Then I cut 2 pieces 1-1/4 X 5-1/4 one of cardstock and one of DSP for the belly bands. Then I ran the cardstock thru our new Ribbon Lace Border punch. Coolist punch ever!! I love the lacey look.

This is what they look like after glued together along with the scallop and circle tag.

Once completely dry, adhere the magnet onto the back of the cap.

Crystal Effects works for this but be sure to let it dry completely once again. But any adhesive will do as long as it is completely dry.

After the bottlecaps and tags are dry, assemble. Put the magnets inside and line up on strip. They will stick to the tin because of the magnets.

Then I closed lid,  flipped the tin over and added belly band and tag.

I finished the tin by adding a Ribbon bow.

I hope you enjoyed my verison of Carla Brasher's gift tin.  If you have any questions or need any additional information, please don't hesitate to contact me!
