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.

It was taking FOREVER, so I finally just put it up. I looked for this thread again and couldn't find it---so I'm glad it's here now. What did I do wrong???
Let me know.
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. HTH!!

The images lift up after awhile and I think this is due to the fact that the flattened bottlecaps bottom seem to be pushed up a little (the are not completely flat). 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.
