Default bottlecap necklace makers do you...

I've been asked to make some party favours which are going to be bottlecap necklaces and I asked the mom what her preference was for the cap whether it be image on the outside, inside or on a flattened cap. She said whatever you think is best for the 3 to 4 years age group. What is your opinion? Thanks in advance.

I do all mine on the outside of the cap and I prefer unflattened. I started with a few flattened and people didn't like them as much, so I don't even do them anymore.

I'd do it on the outside with something in the cap to help it hang right.
(like the furniture pad things.)

Thanks ladies. I was going to do it this way but the mom wasn't sure about the edges.
I prefer this way as well.

My husband thought the edges would be sharp, but they aren't. I wear them at all my shows and I forget it's there. They shouldn't need anything in them to hang right.

I prefer the outside too. I have never had anyone request a bottle cap on the inside so I have never done one. I think they look better on the outside because you can really tell it is a bottle cap. I personally hate the flattened bottle caps. I think they look cheap and therefore dont use them. I have never thought about doing these as party favors, great idea.

I prefer a flattened cap. The image is sealed in the cap (unless you use epoxy dots) and with the others the image can peel, especially with a three year old playing with the necklaces, sticking it in their mouth, etc.

Yes I did them for my daughter and she (mom) loved them. Cute keepsakes.
