Default Please Help, what do i need?

What do I need to make bottle caps? I plan on purchasing blank bottle caps, images, printing them through a printing service( walmart, walgreens etc.), getting the 1" puncher thing and running them through the little X sticker machine. Can someone please tell me what else ill need to create finished bottle caps and what steps i need to follow. Also, for necklace, can someone PLEASE post a picture of one that is ready to be put on the chain/ribbon? Id just like to see exactly what the holes look like and how it goes on. Thanks so much to anyone who can help!

You need Envirotex Lite to seal them and I hang mine on a ribbon necklace with a hole drilled in the top of the cap and an o-ring attached.

Hi! I am starting my first bottle caps this weekend. Search here on Hipgirl because there is alot of information. There are some ladies that are so good and are willing to share their secrets. From everything I have read, Envirotex Lite is the way to go. The other stuff out there tends to melt if you live in a humid area, and is not waterproof. I have also read that you need to coat your images really good with mod podge (like two/three times) so that the images don't bleed through. I have seen the bottle caps hung with ball chain and sometime the ribbon. I think it depends on your customer.

I forgot to tell you that there is a great lady on here named PixiePopTops. She is great with sharing information and her stuff is absolutely adorable. Search her name and you will find all kinds of threads with her advice.
