Sorry ~ I just saw this reply.

I don't know if you can get it online anywhere. I'd be glad to pick some up for you and mail it if you'd like.

I get my colored necklaces from group buys here. They totally things look prettier!!

Hmmmm . . . I had that problem the first time but once I realized where the edge was, it just came up. Try unpeeling it before you cut, stick it back down, and then punch it out. It will break the bond a little and it should come off easier.

Let me know.

I use the mod podge but it tends to slide and takes longer to dry. Do you use anything else to seal the bottlecaps before the ET is put on. I heard you need to seal the images so I have been covering the bottle, top and sides with mod podge before I attached them to the bottom. Do I need to do that? I read that I need to seal the images because the chemical will seep through and ruin the image.
Thanks, Sue
I think it works WAAAY better than the Xyron. Flattened caps tend to have uneven bottoms, but the stickum (is that a word) on this is so strong that even if 100% of it doesn't stick, it still doesn't move.

I don't put anything on my images before I put the ET on them. I have my images printed at Costco so they are on photo paper. Never had one bleed or get weird.
