Default Re: Paracord Bracelet Charms?

Until we get them, I cannot say for sure if there is a punch that would fit them or not. They do look more oval than round in the picture, but sometimes pics are misleading.

Making bottlecaps is easy. You print your design, cut it out and then use a sticker maker to stick it to the bottle cap. You mix equal parts of resin together and pour a small amount into the cap to seal the picture.

We have to order 300 of these so I would need a firm commitment from people who are interested so I don't get stuck with all 300 of them.

That's true, it might be hard to find an oval punch in the right size. Can you tell me what size the ones we would be ordering are? I'll see if I can find a punch or a sizzix die that might work and then I can let you know how many I'll get. (Will probably order more if I can find something to do the cutting for me, lol) Thanks!!!

And thanks for the "how-to"!! That sounds really easy. Is the 2part resin hard to find? I haven't used that before. I'm wondering if we could even using something like Judikins DG3 and even embed other things into it, other than a design on paper, like microbeads or something.... maybe even polymer clay.... just a thought, but maybe that would be cool too.

I can ask the supplier to measure the oval for us, but it will take a few days to get an answer most likely. Perhaps someone who has one could measure the oval for us. Anybody have any of these at their local shoe stores?

I was just looking again at the one on the etsy site, and it says its 18mm x 13mm oval. If they're all the same, then I'm guessing that's it. They also had a round one & rectangular one, but idk what size they are. And the oval looks nicer to me anyway. I'll start looking for a punch or die based on that size and I'll post what it is if I find it.

DH ordered a few of the NFL ones to try out. They will be here any day now so I'll measure and let you know.

I'm pretty sure they are a standard size so that is probably it. That would be great if you'd let us know what you find.

I'll let you know tomorrow how many we would be up for. I'm guessing at least 50 but maybe more. I'll talk to DH and see what his thoughts are since paracord is his "baby"

Actually, now that I look closely at the etsy ones, her charm is different. It has a different end and a different oval around it. It is probably close in size but may not be exact. I think measuring the NFL one is probably a better idea.

Ok, will wait for the measurements before I look any further. (ovals dies are easy to find, but small enuf might be the hardest part) Do you have a picture of the ones we'd be ordering?

They look just like the ones on this site but would be blank in the middle.
