Question What do I need? Help Please would be great

I want to do some bottlecaps, but I need to know what equipment I need and maybe some tips on what to do.

My idea is I want to do some caps that are mascot and school specific for a few of the schools in my area, but I am unsure how to do this.

1 - How do I make the tops for the caps? Do I need a sticker machine or something?

2 - How do you attach them to the center of bows?

3 - Best supplier to get caps from? Cheapest shipping LOL

I am on a time crunch and need to get moving. Any help is appreciated or directions on where this information needs to be bought from LOL

Thanks in advance everyone!

Shannon

Ok.. I did the smart thing LOL, and started in the search section reading. I have seen that a Zyron sticker maker is used for doing the bottle cap tops, I have seen where you need to coat them... but... why would you drill a hole in them?

I also so a really cool thing with wooden circles painted LOL. Very smart substitute!

It's actually a Xyron with an X. You don't have to buy one if you don't want to, but it is nice. You can attach the images with glue if you prefer. After attaching your image to the cap and letting it dry, you cover it with a glaze. I use Envirotex Lite to get a nice glossy coat. You need to let that cure for about 48 hours so you don't get fingerprints in it.
You would punch a whole in the edge if you were using the cap for a necklace or something. But not for attaching to a bow.
Feel free to pm me if you need any more help, I'd be glad to help!

Great tips! I have been researching the same thing. I think some girls have mentioned getting the bottlecaps from beer/wine supply shops for pretty cheap.

What kind of glue do you use to adhere your image to the bottlecap?

This is interesting. I've been interested in bottle caps as well. I think I'm just going to buy some painted ones soon to start with.
