Default Please don't laugh at me...but what can you do with bottlecaps and how?

if you were to use them as flower centers....what kind of glue do you use?

if you are making necklaces---what do you need to make one?

and does anyone have pictures? I get so overwhelmed when I see the word bottlecap that I turn around and run!

I suck at them but to answer your question for any centers, I use E6000 b/c it's really the only thing that holds well. Hot glue is a no no (IMO) HTH!

I've only made a few but when I did make them. I used the same glue that the lady above me mentioned but I used a small paint brush to brush it on, so it's even and doesn't leave drips on it and then I placed my image on top of it, you only have a few sec. to move it around to place it perfectly on there and to make sure all the edges are pushed down and its placed nicely on there. Then I let it sit for awhile just to make sure its fully dry. They have plastic caps you can put on them to make sure that the images doesnt get worn off easily.

Also a little tip that I use on my bigger bows, they have them at the dollar tree's ect... they're little floor protectors that you put on the bottom of chairs, well it fits in the back of the bottle cap perfectly and you can't see it, and it gives the bottle cap an even bottom to place on the bow.

" What's a girl suppose to do without her bows?"
