Default How do you flatten bottlecaps

I'm new at this and have seen where people were selling the flattened bottlecaps. I was wondering if this is something that I could do by myself. Is there a tool that makes these come out so precise each time?

This i remember reading in a yahoo group that you can use cuttlebug/sizzix to make flat bottlecaps. Instead of using diecuts, lay the bottlecaps on the tray and roll.
I never tried though i have a brand new cuttlebug not out of the box!

Some of the flattened bottlecaps that I have seen are not trully flat. Look at seller tootooposh on etsy. She sells beautiful jewerly on there and her flattened bottlecaps are not flat. Check it out.

Her stuff is very nice!
I have no idea how she flattens her caps though.

I tried flattening them on sizzix machine but it wasn't as easy as it sounds. They didn't flatten evenly on each side so one would be totally flat and the other a bit skew whiff. Not the most technical explanation but you get the idea.

I remember years ago a friend of mine talking about using bottlecaps with her sizzix so I'm sure it can be done.

It was due to the thickness they machine didn't go low enough on its own, so I added the adapter but that was a bit too low.

This isn't much help though is with what you actually need to know, sorry

I use a Cuddlebug and they look exactly like the caps tootooposh uses. You want to use the thick white plate and one thin clear plate on the top. Inside of the bottlecap down. It is very easy. I have never had an uneven cap!
