These are batch #1.  Batch #2 will have them encased in resin so they don't scratch your arm when you use up a certain amount of soap...and in the end, you'll have a fun little uhm...paperweight.

 Kiss THE TUTORIAL YOU'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR! Kiss
alright, Aaron and I busted out the digi-cam and got the tutorial put together for you guys!
I'm not sure what's up with photobucket, but here's the deal...
you click on the link and to go through the tutorial, click on the PREVIOUS button.
despite putting the pics in numerical order, photobucket decided to list them backwards.
odd.
very odd.

Let me know if that was helpful and PLEASE post your new journals in here!

5  Bottlecap Brooches - TUTORIAL & my first post! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by CraftyMouse on: May 26, 2004 08:27:04 AM
EDIT:  Hey everyone, sorry...I ran out of bandwidth for the month of June!  But here's a link to see the brooches:

We're slotted to hop on the Greyhound tomorrow
and we're trying to raise some more last minute funds to
pay for the tickets!  We're almost there!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 Grin hey hey...this is my first tutorial & first thread, so let's see how you guys like my craftiness!

My boyfriend and I are making bottlecap brooches and other reconstructed wares to help fund our summer trip around the U.S.! 
(small plug) It's going to be a Summer of Service where we wwoof, volunteer at homeless shelters, soup kitchens, churches, camps,
and pretty much anywhere else that needs us. 

Ok, so here's your promised tute:


Get yourself some groovy USED bottlecaps from a bar, laying around the outside of a hotel, by the pool, or from your kitchen.  Wash them with soap or your're gonna reek of alkeyhal.  Wink


Take some primer and spray a nice grey (or white) coat on your bottlecaps.


Use any kind of acrylic or interior/exterior paint your heart so desires and make your bottlecaps cheery!


Print out words & pictures or cut things out of mags & books (be creative!)


Modge podge or mix a little white glue with water and stick those words and pics to the caps!


After it's all dry, put a final coat to protect those babies from scratches!  Clear coat is CHEEEEAP at Wally World!


Super glue or e6000 some flat pinbacks to the other side.

After lots of drying time, make up some packaging and voila!


So, go make your own!


Much luff and craftiness!~Nina

 Cheesy first post! Cheesy

Well, my sister and I like to make crafts of ALL kinds, but especially recycling/reclaiming/reconstructing stuff and coicidentally, we just finished a purse strap embellished with buttons!  First, we took wire and chain-linked the buttons together, then we just tacked them all into place onto a strap for the purse!  Take a looksie:





Anyway, look forward to more from us, because we're about open our website and start selling!
Much luff to the diy-ers!
