Leadership 2013 Presentation – Bottle Cap Necklaces

Bottle Cap NecklaceHere is one of my favorite projects from my presentation.  It’s a necklace made using the Soda Pop Tops.  To make these, I used a smashed Bottle Cap.  You just need your Big Shot to do this.  Use your platform with both tabs open, then put the bottle cap between the 2 cutting plates and run it through.  You’ll have a perfectly smashed bottle cap!  To punch the hole in the top, I used our 1/16″ handheld punch.  It works great!  Then I attached a jump ring.  After that, I stamped my images and punched them out.  Then, I covered it all with Crystal Effects.  So easy!

I made the little necklace holder out of the white cardboard from the dsp packages and covered it with dsp.  Then I cut 2 slits in the top to hold the chain.

Here’s the best part – the cute packaging!

I used the Petite Pocket die for this.  It fits the necklace inside perfectly.  The little card it’s on is 2″ x 4″.

Here’s another necklace I made with a monogram:

Monogram necklace

I made these for gifts to give to my downline and my fellow Advisory Board members at Leadership.  I packaged them like the one above, but just in a different color scheme.  (I forgot to take a picture before giving them away).  I used My Digital Studio to make the monogram.  It’s the Broadsheet Alphabet, but the stamps were too big.  So, I used the digital stamps and shrunk them down.  Then I printed them out on card stock and punched it out with the 3/4″ circle punch.  The paper underneath is the First Edition Specialty dsp with a little sponging on it.

Supplies Used:

  • Stamps:  Collage Curios
  • Ink:  Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple
  • Paper:  Very Vanilla, Summer Starfruit, Raspberry Ripple, Midnight Muse, Print Poetry dsp stack
  • Big Shot:  Petite Pocket die, Chevron Textured Impressions Folder
  • Accessories:  Soda Pop Tops, Crystal Effects, Midnight Muse Stitched Satin ribbon, Rhinestone Basic Jewels

    Wow – totally awesome 3D project! TFS

  2. These are adorable, Amy! You’re right — as cute as these necklaces are, the packaging is even cuter! Katie was just telling me that she wanted me to make her a bottlecap necklace, and now I know what to do (and copy)!

    WOW! I love these! Thank you so much for sharing how you made them! Can you tell me if you used classic ink for the parts you covered with Crystal Effects? i.e. the sweet little butterfly? I haven’t had good luck with CE because the ink underneath seems to run. Any tips you can offer about that would be wonderful! Thanks SO much!!

    • Thanks! I’m glad you like them! I did use classic ink on the butterfly one and you can probably notice the smeared effect on there. The ink does smear slightly, but I decided I was ok with that look. But, if you didn’t want it to smear, you could try heat setting it first with your heat tool. I haven’t tried that yet, but I think it might work. The monogram was printer ink because I printed those from My Digital Studio. That ink didn’t bleed at all.

        Thanks so much! I think I wll try a couple of different things. Yours is adorable! Embossing might also work.

    just wondering where you got the cords for the necklaces with the monograms.

    • I got them at a store called Sam Moon. It’s a huge accessory place that we have here in the Dallas area. I’m not sure if they have them other places. But, I would think you could find them online somewhere too. They were only $1.99 each – can’t beat that! 🙂
