Bottle Caps Vintage Embellishment – free printable

Since I used bottle caps for my Snow Cherubs, I have been thinking a lot about what a wonderful a resource bottle caps really are. These are a few of the bottle caps I have made for decorating my Christmas gifts:

You can use both upcycled bottle caps, and if you go wild with them (like I have recently), you might want to grab a bag of new ones in a store that carries supplies for wine and beer making… I got 100 bottle caps for 34 kr (approx §5,50).

The bottle caps in these pictures are the upcycled type. I painted them 2 coats with pure white acrylic paint. I did not bother to paint the inside, I think the effect of the “leak” kinda looks like snow 😀

I then sandwiched the twine between one bottle cap and one paper circle of the snowflakes, with hot glue (I am indeed addicted to the stuff, it makes crafting so quick and rewarding…lol) If you want to do an even quicker version of this idea, you can also sandwich the twine (or ribbon of your choosing) between two paper circles. I have looked e-v-e-r-y-w-h-e-r-e in the craft stores in my local area for a 1 inch circle punch, I k-n-o-w they exist, but not here… So my circles are cut by hand, the old fashioned way with shears and patience… pure therapy, I tell ya 🙂

I’m not doing any Christmas shopping this year. My friends and family will either be getting little home made treats or cash (maybe with a pair of socks or something small) so this is how I plan to wrap all my gifts 😀
