Do you punch the hole before or after you put the resin on?

ok I know this is a dumb question, but can you use the resin if you are putting the image on the top of the bottlecap, I got a necklace from Christi and the image was on top, it seems like the resin would run down the sides

don''t let it run over the sides - you will have a mess.

I feel stupid asking this - but why do you need to punch holes in bottlecaps?

I have 1.8mm leather cording, would I need a 2mm punch or would the 1.8 work and allow the cap to slide on the cord?

if you put the hole in the bottlecap, then put on a jump ring, the 1.8 will work great. If you are putting a hole in something else and then the cord thru the hole, you might need the bigger one

But of course! Why couldn't I get passed that, you are absolutely right! Thank you so much for your help, finding the 1.8mm punch was a no brainer, but the 2mm becomes a bit more $$$$. Again, thanks!

The first place I saw one of those was HERE from the very host of this forum:

http://www.hipgirlclips.com/store/in...oducts_id=7443

Edited to add: Looks like it's cheaper here too, plus if you find some ribbon or whatnots, you'll save on shipping, hehe.

Regarding the cups from Sam's...oh yeah, they last for years. Okay, maybe not for you bottlecappers, but we got some when my husband was on a salad kick for lunch & I'd put salad dressing in them. I think the stack of cups is at least 2 1/2 feet high. I also use them for measuring now (mostly insecticides/herbicides) and I'll use one cup to make my measurements, then fit another cup inside & pour into that one. This way I'm not constantly remeasuring amounts that I need.

I just ordered the tool from cooltools and was wondering how fast their shipping is. Can't wait to try it!

And...it is a PITA when I have to drill through a "bump" on the top of the cap - impossible!

Well - lo and behold - OF COURSE they make a tool for this! I have tried paper punches, crop-a-dile - to no avail.

Hole Punch Pliers - 1.8mm

This thing ROCKS!!!! Punches like it is cutting through butter! Easy on the hand, no rough edges - yippie!!!!

Happy shopping, ladies!
