1) collect a pile of beer caps
2) find some pretty beads and fill the cap
3) fill the cap with 2-part resin (be sure to follow the label directions carefully)
4) allow to dry for a few days
5) glue magnets or thumb tacks on the back

Variation: instead of beads for step 2, find some pretty pictures.  Use a quarter to trace a circle on your picture.  Cut it out.  Place it in the bottom of your cap.  Proceed with steps 3-5.

I love glitter too.  Yesterday someone posted a cross stitch that read, "I'm so happy I pee glitter."  Maybe I should make a giant resin magnet with that quote.   Roll Eyes

Haha, that was funny to me for some reason. Tongue

Do you prefer any particular brand of resin?

Different resins are used for different reasons.  I have only used one kind and I can't remember the name of it.   Tongue You can find detailed discussions on resin types here:
