Default Bottle Caps

I just got about 30 bottle caps, they are NOT flattened and I want to attach them to an alligator clip. Can anyone please share any ideas. I tried to look them up but I would like instructions (detailed) please. I do know I have to use E6000 glue with them

If anyone has a video or Pictures with detailed instructions I would appreciate it! Thank you so much!

I just stick a small felt pad (like the ones you put on the bottom of furniture) into the cap. They fit perfectly. Then I just glue to the lined alligator clip. Other people buy small wooden disks and glue those into the cap to fill the hole also.

Great I was thinking about doing felt to stick in there!! Or Foam or something.. I was trying to figure out how to make it so the hole was filled in to stick to the clip (if that made sense )

I also use the felt circles. Dollar General has them like 20 for $1.50. And they're self adhesive...I still use a little E-6000 on 4 spots on the edge of the felt, but I've found them to be easier to use than the wooden discs. They're also a little bit thicker. I couldn't make the discs sit flush with the cap, so I had to work to get enough hot glue to put the disc to the clip KWIM?

I was in a boutique yesterday who sold cute embellished bottlecaps and lined clips with a round magnet on it that way you could switch out the different bottlecaps. I thought it was a cute idea but she wanted $3 a bottlecap and $2 for the clip!! Sheesh!

I have heard of the magnets , which I thought was a cute idea but how much could you get for them $3.00 seems like a alot.. Maybe $6.00 for 2 bottle caps and a clip seems pretty fair!

But thanks for the tips girls.. if anyone else has tips please let me know! I am going to Test a few out, that this lady gave me a sample of the bottle caps so I could practice!

I'll let you know what works for me!
