Default Bottle cap problems..

When I make bottle cap items...I use the epoxy circles and then I use high heat hot glue to glue them to the inside of the bottle cap..Well I have had a couple people say their images have fallen out..Am I doing something wrong?

I run my images through a xyron sticker maker and stick them to the outside of my caps. Make sure the caps have the seals removed if you are sticking the images in there.

I would go with the sticker maker, plus I also cover the imageswith mod podge. I hever use hot glue with bottle cap. The glue does not work with the metal. It would be better use E6000 or professional grade super glue.

Talking Re: Bottle cap problems..

I would have to agree, i started out using a glue gun, bet got feed up with the mess and the fact that they would sometime fall of.

Here is what i do

Stick my epoxy dot to image, Cut it out and any remaining of (i dont have a hole punch yet but am looking for one)

I normally make a few at a time, i then run it through a sticker machine i have.

this is the one i have

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Xyron-X250-S...3216069&sr=8-2

I then scratch my bottle cap just a little not a lot and apply a small amount of super glue before applying my image, i think this is just for piece of mind as well.

When i attach my bottle top to my bow i superglue a small piece of ribbon to the other side of the bottlecap then glue it on with superglue as the same priniciple applies to attaching it to your bow.
