How to make bottle cap magnets:
– Bottle caps (you can use unused ones or you can spray paint used ones)
– Scrapbook paper
– Embellishments (jewels, glitter, etc…)
– Mod Podge
– Clear Gel (I used Aleene’s Clear Gel Tacky Glue, however next time I’ll use the Mod Podge Dimensional Magic)
– Amazing Goop Craft Contact Adhesive
– A quarter
Take out your bottle caps and all your supplies.
Trace a circle on your scrapbook paper (I used a quarter as my guide) and then cut it out. Repeat this step until you have as many circles as you want.
Apply Mod Podge to your circles with a brush. You must apply some to both sides of the circle, do one side and wait until it dries before doing the other side.
Once your circles are dry, you are ready to glue your circles inside your bottle caps.
You can add some embellishments to your bottle caps. If you plan on adding glitter, don’t add it right now.
Now it’s time to apply the Clear Gel. You must do this slowly or you’ll get lots of air bubbles. If you do get bubbles, you can use a pin needle to burst them (however I like the look of the bubbles, so I did not burst any of them). **It takes at least 24 hours for the gel to dry. Do not touch or move your bottle caps until they are completely dry**
I did not apply the gel over the jewels, I just went around them.
If you plan on using glitter, use it now before the gel dries.
(24 hours later)
Glue the magnets to the back of the bottle caps.
Place them on your fridge and ENJOY!
