A Coca~Cola Charm

I don't have a lot of photos from this project, I apologize about that in advance. Sometimes I get working in my craft room and I just get carried away and forget to take photos!
I had a few bottle caps laying around that I thought were neat looking, one of them was a coca~cola one and I have been wanting to alter it. 
The flat one that I made here was just a plain cap that was already flattened that I bought off of ebay, they sell them in bulk there.. I am making a magnet out of that one.
So for starters I had to heat up the inside of each cap in order to take out the plastic. I just use my heat tool and some pliers.
Then I picked out some cool paper for my backgrounds. 
One of the papers was a tag that I had made using my Gelli plate awhile back and I thought it would make a perfect background. I just use a 1" punch for these, it's the perfect size. 


Then I decided to use the Tim Holtz rub ons for the sentiments. These are perfect and you can use glossy accents over them without worry that they will mess up or move.


I did bit a of stenciling on them and added a few elements. I also stamped the butterfly here on this one.
I used Archival ink pads just to be sure it didn't run once I put my glossy accents inside. 


Once they were done I glues the paper inside the caps and added my glossy accents.
I also made holes in the Coca~cola charm in order for in order to add a few hanging things and my charm top.



For the magnet I simply added high power magnets to the back with E6000 glue.



Thanks again for stopping by, cya next time.
