Default drilling bottlecaps

What size drillbit do you use? I just ordered a ton of caps, then the lady emailed me saying she charges .35 per cap to drill holes.

UM needless to say, I will be drilling my own.

dremmel using a 1/16 drill bit...

punching with a nail and a hammer makes sharp pokey parts that need to be filed or clipped off

want soething even easier that wont leave a sharp edege? for about 7.00 there is a punch in the scrapbooking section of walmart, it is purple and looks like a hole puncher. Friskers makes it! It is super easy to punch out and you dont have any drilled hands OR sharp edges to sand away!!

I have 2, I bought the cheaper mint green version and it works just fine!! i think it is 1/16 size

I have tried the scrapbooking punches and I have broken two of them and never gotten them to make a hole in a bottle cap.
A 1/16" drill bit works.

I use a regular hand-held drill 1/16 titanium bit. I still have to go onto the back and use my dremmel tool to get rid of the sharp edges it leaves. I have never gotten the punch to work - always damaged the caps/.

did you snap out the end inside it? If you snap that out it wont hurt your caps I love mine! But maybe it isnt for everyone
