Bottlecap Necklaces {tutorial and free download}

A few days ago, my daughter's best friend turned the all important age of 3.  My little girl has been going around the house for weeks now saying that Jemma is her best friend, so I knew exactly what we should do for her present.

 Here it is all wrapped up ready to go:

And on the inside? A sweet gift from my daughter to her...
Perfect for best friends, right?!

While I was designing up the little 1" circle designs, I figured I'd make a few for me too.  I mean, really, who doesn't need a little reminder each day:


And I have a son who was just baptized and this made a perfect addition to his new scripture bag!

Would you like some too?

To make a bottlecap necklace, you simply need:
bottle caps and epoxy stickers...here is an example
a necklace chain (you can find these at any craft stores)
hot glue
and
this fun download

Simply print and cut out the circles. (A 1" circle punch works perfectly). Adhere the epoxy sticker on the paper design. Place a small amount of hot glue on the paper back and push it right down into the bottle cap.  Place it on the necklace (or key chain, zipper pull, etc.) You are done! So simple, right?!

Now go and find the perfect someone to give them to.

Would love a "No drama" one. My 3rd grader is always complaining about all the girls drama in her class. These would be perfect for her to hand out!

would love some dealing with girl drama. My 3rd grader is always complaining about all the girl drama in her class. I keep promising to make her a button or pin that says "No Drama" or "if I wanted drama, I'd take acting classes"
