CCM Spotlight Bottle Caps

Over on the beautiful new Spotlight blog for Crafty Cardmakers we are challenging you to use bottle tops on your creations.

The challenge was set by Paula and here’s what she had to say about it

‘I'd love you to use Bottle caps either metal ones (new or used) or plastic ones - and remember, you don't have to make a card, you can make anything you like incorporating the bottle caps....anything from jewellery, card embellishments,fridge magnets or like me, a key ring.’

We have a prize for the winner of a set of Hero Arts stamps LL997 called Tiny Greetings image

I have to confess to having had lots of ideas none of which came to fruition. I was using real beer bottle caps and no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t flatten them! I think it says more about me than the caps, lol, not enough welly in my hammer hand.

So in the end I plumped for something different.

I made a scrap LO of my lovely Poppy with a few pictures of her sleeping. The papers and embellishments (which I printed and then cut out) are all from Nitwits. The caps, which formed the title, were filled with some lovely K&Co epoxy stickers that had the perfect sentiment for the page.

Please pop on over to the Spotlight blog and have a look at my teamies’ clever designs, and I am sure you will find something there to inspire you.
