Brazen Broads - Bottle Cap Magnets!

These bottle cap magnets are the result of me going on a little buying trip to Hobby Lobby.
 Hobby Lobby sells all the ETI products I feature on this blog and good news folks: they are going to be selling the new Envirotex Jewelry Clay!
This collection of vintage bottle caps was on sale, so I could not resist picking up a pack...even though I already have 1000 bottle caps in my stash....
The artwork is a digital download from Jewelry Foolery and appropriately titled; Retro Brazen Broads.  They did make me laugh!
I picked up a new one inch circle punch while I was shopping.  It makes these project super easy.
Jewelry Foolery already sized the images to be a perfect one inch circle.
These were among my favorite images.
I glued in and sealed my images and let them dry overnight.  Now that there is a little more humidity I need to make sure glue is 100% dry before I pour in my resin.
The last thing I did before I poured in Envirotex Jewelry Resin was to add a little glitter glue to the circle edges. I love my new bottle caps!  I added magnets to the back and they are ready to be revealed on the fridges of friends!

This post was designed, photographed and written by me.

The glitter glue is a good idea. I hadn't thought of that. Thanks for another great post! Mine would say, I love camping!

Enjoyed visiting your blog and seeing your cute bottle cap magnets. What kind of glue did you use to attach your images to the bottle caps?

I used the same decoupage medium to glue and seal my paper. Either Aleenes matte decoupage or mod podge works for me.

Love your blog. There's so much to learn. I'm new to resin jewelry and tried making some pendants last night. A couple of my photos have dark areas. Now I know why. Thank you.
