Default Bottle Cap Backgrounds

How do I make a bottle cap with a background other than a solid color? I don't know how to get the background into the circle.

You can buy images off of etsy. If you want to use your own images use your image program to crop it in a square (I use GIMP) then size it to 25mm. Print it out then cut a circle out of that. I used a quarter to make a template out of clear plastic that I center over the image then draw around the template and cut the image out. I put my images inside the bottlecap and cover it with resin.

I am not familiar with paint shop. I use PhotoShop and I just open the backgroud file I want to use and then just drag and drop into my bottle cap template. Your background file will have to be compatible with your program. With PhotoShop it will not let you edit a gif file so I have to convert to rgb. HTH

Smile Re: Bottle Cap Backgrounds

This is how I did it,

To do the Bottle Caps, I used MS Publisher and I only had address labels in white to use...I think that next time I'll buy a sheet that isn't split up into labels. Then you can cut them up easier.

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!
