Behold, my beloved beer cap magnets! 

They were made as a somewhat last minute birthday gift for my boyfriend's sister.  I baked polymer clay into the bottom of the caps in order to lift the magnet to the proper height for fridge contact.  Super strong magnets were glued using E6000.  Sorry, I don't have any pics of the backs.

For the gift-giving presentation, I put them in an old altoids tin and tied it in a black ribbon bow:

She loved them! and since I loved them so much, I made myself a set right away.

Just for the heck of it, here's an action shot of them on my fridge:

That's a really neat idea and you pulled it off well!

I'm glad your friend liked them!

Adorable!  I love the gift presentation, too.  What a sweet gift.

(That soup recipe looks yummy, too, lol.)
