Like for bottle caps? Select the area to be copied, make sure it's all on the same layer, then using the "edit" drop down menu at the upper left of the window, select "copy" then "paste as" and I usually paste as a new layer or new brush. Here's a tut that was meant for buttons, but the same basics apply, http://buttonmakers.net/blog/button-gimp/
GIMP also has a users manual, just google it. I know there are lots of tuts for purchase that will walk you step by step through the process.
