Are your caps flat? or are you using them backwards? Just wondering bc the rare earth magnets are flat.

Yep, I've done it a lot, I use 10 power craft magnets, and glue them UNDER the center ribbon, but I don't tie a knot in the center, just glue the ribbon flat over the magnet.

Did a ton for Christmas, sold them like crazy to my friends.

I just use magnets from Hobby Lobby in the wood crafting section, and hot glue, never had a problem.

If you are using flat bottlecaps the magnets from walmart won't work they are to big. Look on ebay or etsy for rare earth magnets.

Magnets are rated on their strength, depending on what you are using them for you buy a certain power. So a 10 is very very strong. Usually it has it on either the front or the back of the package.

Hmm. Sadly the closest HL is 1hr from me. I guess I'll check the other craft stores. Can these be used with the flattened caps?
