Bottle Cap Magnets

This is today's 2nd post.  To see my project for A Gem of a Challenge, please go here.  (Or scroll down.)


Today's project uses some fun products from Creative Inspirations Paints, including their newest product, the one-step resin known as Resinesence.  I've needed some new magnets for my magnetic white board, so I thought I'd make my own using bottle caps (the purchased kind)!

I punched out one-inch circles from white cardstock then painted them with two colors each of CI Paints.  Then I stamped them with tiny stamps.  I glittered one of them with Resplendence Angel Dust and added Jeweled Inspirations to two of them (seated in flattened bead caps first).

With a red Jeweled Inspiration

 Here are a couple of close ups.

Now as soon as I can find my little magnet circles, I'll be able to attach them and use them as intended.  In the meantime, I'll call these "desk jewelry."  Heh.

Thank you for joining me, and please don't forget to stop by and play with us in this fortnight's challenge which is Inspired by Red, White and Blue.

Happy crafting!
