Red face Question about Bottlecap Necklaces...

I'm looking to make some bottlecap necklaces and for those of you that already make them I was wondering...
1) Do you make them with the image INSIDE or OUTSIDE (or if you do both, which is more popular)
2) If you do the image on the outside, do you need to be concerned with the bottlecap SCRATCHING the person wearing it?? Is it rough or pose any hazard??
I'm still waiting for a few supplies to arrive (including my caps) but I was just wondering since I've never seen one in person...
Thanks so much for your help!!

Default Re: Question about Bottlecap Necklaces...

Typically the images are on the outside of the caps. You secure them to the caps with whatever adhesive you prefer (not hot glue though 'cause it makes it lumpy). I would suggest buying a Xyron sticker maker. I find it's easy and sitcks well. The images are then covered with some type of resin. This again, is your preference but anything like Mod Podge will work.

Do they scratch at all??
It would seem to be a rough edge...wouldn't it?

I make them both ways inside and outside but 95% of my sales the image is on the outside of the cap. If you are buying unused caps (meaning they have never been sealed on to a bottle) then the edges flare out some and don't scratch.
