Bottle Cap Necklace and Petite Purse

Have you tried out the Bottle Caps in the Stampin’ Up! Spring catalog?  Did you know that you can flatten them and turn them into jewelry?

This was our third Make & Take project for the Stamp, Scrap & Create Escape Retreat.  We used the bottle caps to make necklaces (and LaRee used the small ones to make earrings too).

We used the Big Shot to flatten the bottle cap.  Stamped the images on card stock and punched them out.  Glued it in the bottle cap and then covered with Crystal Effects – let it dry over night.  This is a fun project but doesn’t work well in a class setting because of the drying time so it was a perfect project for the retreat.  I made one where I added the Rhinestone while the Crystal Effects was still wet and another one I added it afterwards.  The little 1/16″ handheld punch was used to punch a hole in the edge and then add a chain or ribbon.

And the cute little jewelry needs something cute to put it in – right?  So I created this little matching Petite Purse.  Now it makes an adorable gift – Mother’s Day is coming up you know!

I used the Petite Purse die and Basic Gray card stock.  The front panel was cut a second time and embossed with the Chevron Embossing folder.  A ribbon handle was added with some of the tiny brads.  Stamp and punch the butterfly – add the Vintage Faceted button and ta-DA – a super cute little purse to hold that necklace!

Thanks for visiting today!
