I was inspired by this post from merrydeath21: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=287913.0
to make my own bottlecap bracelet. But since I don't drink Beer (neither do my brother or mum) it was hard to get the caps Cheesy
Luckily I received some bottlecaps in the OWS swap ^^ + I had some lovely japanese paper laying, received in the Nov Birthday swap last year and I thought it would be perfect!

A little Tut:
I first cut a little round shape, saw if it fitted into the caps and than cut them from the japanese paper.
Glue them in the caps with lot's of white craft glue, waited 'till dry (it took a whole day to dry) and than hammered 2 holes in the side
connected them with jump rings, attached a closure and voila! finished ^^

onto the pics:

I need to change the claps though, it's hard to get it on with just one hand Cheesy

So what do you think?

Oh, this is awesome. I have been experimenting with melting crayon wax, but couldn't figure out how to get it out of the caps I melted it into. This would be perfect. But your paper is way prettier. Cheesy Thanks for posting!

Great job, I love it!  I like getting the odd glass bottles of soda so I can collect the different caps.  There is a book by klutz with the same idea - and making bottle cap art is addicting.  Grin
