Default Help what do I do? Bottle caps

Ok, So i made some bottle caps, I follow the instructions on here. I thought I glue the images right but it seems that I forgot to glue the edges real good so I got my images coming off the bottle caps on the edges but they seem to be fine in the middle. How do I reglue the edges on the images without messing them up?

You can take some modge podge and put it on a toothpick or something and just run it along the edge of the image and then press it down. Something to keep in mind when gluing the images is that it's easier if you use a Xyron machine (a sticker machine used mainly in Scrapbooking). If you choose this method, the machine itself has different adhesive cartridges. You would want to make sure you use the one that's labeled permanent adhesive. It will glue your image on their very securely and it won't come off. Make sure you have it lined up right because it's very difficult to get it off even in the first few minutes. IMO the best way to get your images secured to your cap!

I agree with Cristi...the xyron machine is what I use, you can get that at any craft store just about or walmart. I have the little one that does up to 1.5" stickers and is perfect for the bottlecap images and it is around $10. I used my 50% off coupon one time at Hobby Lobby and got it for $5 I did mess up the first couple that I did because like Cristi said....make sure you line it up right the first time because it is not going anywhere once it hits that metal bottlecap Good luck & hope you can save the ones you already have done.

Yes, the Xyron does help with getting a nice even seal!

You can use the Xyron or 3D crystal lacquer.
