Magnets made from recycled bottle caps
« on: May 30, 2009, 11:05:31 AM »
speaking of recycled stuff, here's a set of magnets that I made with recycled beer bottle caps:

Those are cute!  I made a bunch of these as give-a-ways at shows and they are always a hit.

These really are cute-I recently saw a story about a couple of little girls who are millionaires from making bottle cap magnets.
I've been saving caps for a while-and have a lot of unusual, funky ones from different beers-boyfriend likes to try the really different off the wall beers. Would like to make something so some of the tops are showing, but haven't figured out yet what I'll do with them.

Great job  :) and cool inexpensive idea for free hand outs!!

Those are cool.

Manic - fill the bottle cap with some resin - stick a magnet on it -  put some kind of clear coat over the top of the cap - that way you've got the top showing - maybe some guys would like those - or gals too!

That would work, methinks.  Great thought, Kris.
