Default Bottle Caps for boys.....any ideas?

Does anyone have any ideas for things that can be made using bottle caps in boy themes? I am a digital scrapbooker and have thousands of digital kits. I would love to be able to use these to make some cool bottle caps for my nephews but I have no idea what they could be used for.

Thanks,

Cristi

um maybe for belts? Gosh that is a hard one. Not as many cool cute little things you can make for bows like you can girls. I always thought it would be a cool idea to use them for a checkers board set. You could use that vinyl colored stuff they use for vinyl lettering for the squars.................who knows! Good luck

I have lots of nephews and they love ZIPPER PULLS...
I've found that Transformers, Star Wars, Pokemon/Digimon, Dinosaurs, even scarier monsters like Jason Vorhees and Freddy Kruger are popular.

Hope that helps.

I think alot of boys would wear the bottle caps as necklaces too, especially if you string them on leather cording. Or maybe you could make bottlecap magnets? I do like the idea about using them for checkers though.

Oh...I just thought of one, it could be adorable. My son loves Cars cars and John Deer Tractors, what about a travelling magnetic checker board? I am not sure yet about the board part but the bottlecaps would be great for this.

I didn't read this thread fully....but at least I see great minds think alike!!

What about the chain that attaches to the wallet? My son is 9 and that is super popular here. I dont know what it is called though.

I HAVE AN IDEA FOR THE CHECKERBOARD. USE A SMALL SQUARE CAKE PAN THE ONES WITH A LID WORK GREAT. THE PEICES CAN BE KEPT IN THE PAN WHEN NOT IN USE. YOU COULD EITHER PAINT IT ON OR MAYBE PRINT THE BOARD OUT ON ONE OF THOSE STICKER OR MAGNETIC SHEETS AND PUT IT ON THE BACK IF ITS A STICKER OR PUT IT INSIDE WITH THE PIECES.

TRANSFORMERS PREHAPS YOU COULD DO THE TRANSFORMERS AS ONE SET AND THE DEFCONS AS THE OTHER.
