Default Flattened bottlecaps?

I would like to start flattening my bottlecaps and I do not own a cuttlebug or a sizzix. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advanced :-)

You can put the cap on a piece of wood (or other hard surface) and hammer down the edges.

This doesn't dent up the cap?

I have only done it twice but it hasn't dented the cap yet.

I have also read that you can put a self healing mat over the cap when
you hit it to prevent the possibility of denting the cap.

Wow - I didn't know you could flatten your own - I buy mine previously flattened.

I think that for the small difference in price, and what you can sell them for, it's totally worth it buying them pre-flattened.

I also buy my bottle caps pre-punched, with the split ring attached.

Saves sooooo much time

I do buy some without holes though, as I use those to make magnets and other stuff.

I buy my flat bottle caps from a supplier on etsy for the same price as the regular caps

I'm sure you're right. I can see attempting to flatten them on my own & end up breaking something because I did it so carefully & still dented the dang thing! lol

Until I saw this thread I thought the only way to flatten them was with the hammer. I had no idea I could use my Sizzix, so I tried and it's AMAZING!!! It works so great!
