How-to: Recycled Bottle Cap Magnets

One of the great things about where I work is that I am surrounded by a group of very creative people who are very open with sharing their ideas. So to give credit where credit is due, the inspiration for this tutorial came from Susan from Sew Country Designs.

To make these recycled bottle cap magnets you will need:

  • Recycled metal bottle cap
  • Recycled color magazine
  • Scissors
  • White Glue
  • 1 Quarter
  • 1” wide clear tape
  • Recycled magnet (free business card magnets or giveaways will work, if not you can buy magnets at craft stores)
  • Aleene’s Paper Glaze
  • E-6000 Adhesive
  • Ruler

About the Author

I’m a lifelong crafter with many different interests. My latest obsession is making accessories for women's hair and making flowers from a variety of recycled and repurposed materials. If it is shiny, feathery or sparkly I love it! I also carry around a pocket camera to take pictures of items, scenery, signs, or anything else that I find inspiring. I enjoy creating new things and sharing how to make my creations with others on my blog (http://designbynight.blogspot.com/).
