Those are cute! They look really nice!
I think I would keep them like this; without the eyes.

Cute as they are.  Hmmm...looks like my vegan friend needs some for her birthday!  What do you use to gloss them?

I would never have thought of using polymer clay in bottlecaps-that is so creative!  I like them the way they are, but googly eyes would probably be cute too.

 Oh, I would leave the eyes off. These are cute just as they are.

Ooh - they are lovely, and the simple colour palette works very well.  I'd not add eyes; I think that'd over complicate them.

 Grin  Wow, so many replies - I feel so loved!

Thanks for the input on the eyes - I'm leaving them off.  I feel like my impulse is to make crafts "cute," and sometimes I miss more classy or mature crafts that way - the googly eyes are a case in point.

I used Sculpey clay to make them, and glossed them after they were finished with a gloss interior varnish - found near the craft paint in Michael's, it's like $2 for a 2 ounce bottle (which goes a long way when you're working on this small scale!)

Caboosy, these rock! I agree with everyone to nix the googlies. I know a few people that will be getting a set of these. I'm thinking of packaging them in an Altoid box done in a veggie garden motif. Thanks for the great idea. I've never used bottle caps, did you paint them with a special paint or anything?
