Smile Bottlecap question....

Hi I want to learn how to make these cause buying them is just costing me too much. I asked around but no one wants to give me there secrets....lol.

few questions...

a) what kind of paper do you use for the images?
b) do you have to do anything special before you use the sealent?
exp: do you have to stick the image to the cap first before glazing or just seal it on there and it will stay in place.
I see some use enviortex lite/crystal diamond glaze.
c) what program do you use to make the circles? and what size?
I have a 1"round squeeze puncher from fiskars.
d) know if printing at a walgreens on picture paper what size do you print on 4x6, 5x7 and how many on each page..... do you know what I'm asking here? exp: if 4x6 paper how many images going across and how many going down.

e) any tips/secrets would help.

Thank you in advance.

I'm not an expert with bottlecaps but I just started doing them about two months ago. Heres what I do:
I purchase bottle cap images off of etsy, those that are 4 x 6, then I send them to an online photo printing company (snapfish).
I punch them out with the 1" circle punch. I pass them threw my sticker maker and then peel and attach to the bottle cap. No need to seal them since they were done by a photo company. Then I add the diamond glaze and let dry for 24 hours. HTH.

Thank you ..... I would more likely want to know what program to use as I want to do my own images then having to pay someone else for doing the same work.
