I used the address label template and did two to a label.

I bought a Fiskars Medium size 1" circle punch.

Once I printed out the image on the labels, I had to cut a little off the end because I pushed the image over so that my inkjet printer would print out the whole thing.

After punching out a whole line lengthwise I had to cut some off again, you'll have to do this with each line of labels.

Once you have the image punched out you adhere it to the top of the bottle cap. Then cover it with a resin dot.

You shouldn't need any glue, that will mess up the effect.

The sticky back of the address label and the stickyness of the resin dot should be plenty.

Then you need to get some 1" felt pads (The kind that you use on the bottom of your chairs). You can glue them in or just peel off the sticky back and press into the other side of the bottle cap. This takes up the negative space and makes it flush to put on to the bow.

Glue the cap onto the bow and you're done!

Good Luck!
Thank you for all the very helpful info.

I'm not comfortable with paint shop. I use PhotoShop and I just start the file I need to use and then just drag and drop into my bottle cap template. Your background file will need to be suitable for your application.

I can't find anywhere to start a thread so......

I have seen bottle cap images that have 2 patterns for the packground.

Like polka dots on top and stripes on bottom. I would like to know how to do this. I use Elements
