Default How to flatten bottlecaps?

How do you flatten bottlecaps? I have been making some for bow centers and would love to flatten some but have no idea how to do it.

Thanks!

A good ole' hammer, lol. Just did some tonight for practice, came out perfect, I put it on a old wood table and went around it and hammered normally, not real hard but enough to get it where you want it. You will be able to see how hard you need to hit them.

I've heard about people running them through their circuit or sizzix type machine. You can also buy them pre-flattened on ebay and etsy. There's one seller that sells them flattened with the rubber liner already removed.

I use my sizzix die cutter to flatten bottle caps and it's so easy. You can't use your cricut machine to do that though.

I lay them on a wood cutting board and pound them with a rubber kitchen mallet. Works great. My kids love to do it.
