After first year at university I acquired piles of bottle caps- found 'em frequently in my room, left there by my loving friends.
I figured I better do something with them!
Flattened most of them out with a hammer, stuck 'em to a board and there you have it. I peeled the mirror out of an old makeup case that I had.  I used nails, hot glue, krazy glue and white glue in an attempt to find out what worked best (answer? nails, even though you can see them

just a stupid question but did you ever smash you own finger while attaching the bottle caps?

I don't know if this would interest any of you, but I am collecting bottle caps to make a band to tie around my cowboy hat.  I go to school in Texas and lots of people wear cowboy hats to the football games.  I was going to try and punch holes in them and use like a button or something to sew them onto a wide ribbon.  You can buy the bands, but they're like $15+ so I figured why not make my own  ::shrug::
