- Bottle Cap
- Utee (Extra Thick Embossing Enamel)
- Small Embellishments, such as Tim Holtz's Grungeboard Mixed Minis
- Heat tool, or oven
- *Optional - 24 guage wire
2 - Cut out a circle of paper to line the bottom of your cap.
3 - Glue it in. I used Glossy Accents by Ranger
4 - Press the background paper into the bottle cap, being sure to press the edges.
5 - Using other flat embellishments, create your background.
6-8 - Using pieces from the Grungeboard Mixed Minis, create another embellishment for your cap. I used the heart and crown, and inked them with Spiced Marmalade and Aged Mahogony Distress Inks by Tim Holtz. Set this aside for now.
9 -10 - Fill the cap with UTEE, and do one of two things. Either heat it with a heat gun (which could cause the powder to go flying every where), or bake them at 250 degrees in an oven. This is where I messed up. Be very, very careful not to over heat the UTEE, or it will turn yellow, like mine did. Once it starts to melt, it only takes a few seconds to completely melt through. Remove from the oven, and let it cool for a few mintues.
11 - You'll notice that once the UTEE has cooled, it only fills about half of the cap.
12-13 - Place the second embellishment that you made in the cap where you want it positioned, and cover it once again in UTEE
14 - Repeat the baking/heating process, let it cool, and you're finished!
What I've learned: Don't over heat UTEE, or it will bubble and turn yellow - no fun. Also, stop chewing my nails, people can see them in my photos.
I hope this inspires some one out there to make a bottle cap embellishment of their very own!
