Default Re: How do you flatten bottlecaps

Did you ever figure this out? I don't have a Cuttlebug and am wondering if it would be worth the purchase. I'd really like to be able to do the partially flattened caps, but I don't want to buy the machine if it doesn't really work.

Never mind, I just found some on ebay for less than 10 cents apiece. I'll just buy them already flattened.

I just used my sizzix and it worked perfectly, and all this time I thought they bought them that way LOL. What if you have color on the back side do you think that would matter to the person?

I buy mines off from Gb here or bottlecapco but when I`ve fallen into 0 in stock emergency I`ve flattened and it is very easy just put the caps on top of a towel (so they don`t scratch is they are painted) hollow part facing up put piece of plywwod or wood on top and hit it with a hammer.
i even place several at the same time in a line and then go over with the hammer trying to follow the same line and that is it........don`t buy a cuttlebug for this before trying!!!!!!!

I have used a rubber mallet and a piece of 4x6 to flatten my bottle caps. I would rest the bottle cap on a towel (so it does indent my table), placed the piece of 4x6 over the top and hit it with the mallet. Then I realized it would be a lot easier if I used the Drill Press my husband bought for me a couple of years ago. Takes about 5-10 mins to do 100 caps and no loud banging noises

You ladies are amazing!!!

I flattened my first caps tonight with my Cuttlebug (special thanks to Vanitha for destashing!!!). It works perfectly. Just layer C plate, bottlecaps open side up, A plate, then run through machine...perfect caps each time. I used the C plate b/c it's thicker. When I used the B plate on top, some of the caps were lopsided.
