Default Re: Interchangable Bottlecaps for Bows?

I made one. I get so caught up with all my new ideas I tend to forget about stuff lol! I need to make 5 of them for my cousin's bday party in May... they will be pink bows with a Pinkalicious bottle cap and an initial bottle cap for each girl.

Plus, for the discussion about the magnets- I've used both the Walmart variety as well as the super strong ones from Etsy sellers. The Etsy ones are much better for this job, but they're tiny and could be a major swallowing hazard if they come loose. I'm nervous about selling bows/ caps to young girls with those tiny magnets. Any other ideas???

Although it is a great idea for getting customers to return.... they love the bow, they'll have to come back to you for more caps
I make one bow with 2 or 3 caps to match - it comes as a set. I don't sell just the bottlecaps. About the choking hazard... almost everything we sell has a choking hazard. There is a warning on all my listings and on my display cards. That is the parent's obligation. These things should not be anywhere near a child's mouth, and they should never be worn while sleeping, in car seats, etc.
