No problems for me.

As for using them with bottle caps, let me see....

If you use a flattened cap, it sticks out LESS than 1/4" on either side.
Ok. I went back and re-read your earlier post and took a closer look at your pictures. I see that just enough of the alli's hinge is accessible from the top to open and close it.

But you were able to minimize the amount showing by gluing the embellishment to the flat side. (Normally the flat side would be down).

I wouldn't have thought to try that but I can see it looks good. That may have a lot to do with the quality of your workmanship.
