Hobby Lobby and Jewelry Resin Bottle Cap Projects



Bottle Cap Birdie with Jewelry Resin


Items From Hobby Lobby
Envirotex Jewelry Resin
1” Circle Bottle Cap Bezel 4 Pcs #878587L    
1 Inch Circle Lever Punch    
Peel Off  Stickers–Gold Leaves #325209  
Lost and Found 6 x 6 BLUSDesigner Cardstock Paper     
Silver Ball/Chain #566083   
Decoupage Medium (Aleenes or Mod-Podge)    
Glitter Glue  
Optional
Chain  or charm bracelet of your choosing.

Begin your bottle cap project by selecting some paper imagery you like. In the paper pad I used I had quite a few options and choose to use the pages featuring birds.  
The punch is ideal for this project because it pops out the exact size to fit your one-inch circle bezel.
Paper needs to be sealed before you pour resin over it.  I like to use a decoupage medium and I apply three different sealing coats allowing each coat to dry before applying the next. 
When my paper is sealed I also like to add a little glitter to the edges.  Glitter looks wonderful under resin.  In this case I am adding it to the edges, but you could add it anywhere you like. 
I also added some peel off stickers.  My final step was to make a small batch of Jewelry Resin following the manufacturer’s instructions and simply poured it into each bottle cap.

Just beautiful. I am amazed with this type of resin...there is no odor. I was very hesitant to try it, since the old casting resin in the metal can bothers my sinus allergies. Thanks to all of your awesome ideas and the pocket watch challenge, I found a casting resin I can use again. Thanks!!
