Default bottle cap issues

Ok so I'm trying to perfect my bottle cap and I just can't seem to get it! I use kodak photo paper to print out my images, next I use my 1 inch puncher to punch them out and next I modge podge it to the bottle cap, when I modge podge it the image just looks weird on the bottle cap to me...like I feel like the edges are hanging off of the cap slightly...anytime I have seen caps done they have a smooth finish to the cap...not a blunt edge all the way around the cap...and next I attempt to seal it with that 2 part resin...looks good...but the edges of the image just don't look like they fit on the cap! I've tried different caps and different glues, I've tried sticking it to the cap with that sticker maker thing I jus can't seem to get my edges smooth someone please help!!!

That's what I'm thinking may be the issue

I am getting ready to make some also--someone said they use their X adhesive to them on the bottlecap (zyron) and they they used the resin dots sticker to put over them.

I am wanting to put some charms to hang from them---does anyone have any instruction for this... Also do you use a drill to cut your hole for the ring?

I use the tiny xyron machine for the image and then the page pebbles for the top, I really don't like the page pebbles as the edge does not fit right but so with that said, I put charms and beads hanging from mine and the way I have done it in the pass is drill a hole and take my tool to open spilt rings and then I put the strung beads or charms from it.

This is the hole punch I got from HL and it works great.

I do alot of bottle cap charms for necklaces and I use this tool to punch the holes. I think if you were going to dangle beads from the bottom of the cap you could use this to punch your hole too. I tried to use my husbads little drill, but it didnt work real well for me.

I have used this hole punch on over 200 bottle caps and it has yet to get dull. Sometimes it will stick in the bottle cap when punched, but very easy to remove with one pull. HTH!

ok I am wondering, is that punch is making the rough edge?

Are you finishing them off at all or just the modge podge, can you take a pic of that you mean?
