What I do is to place the bottle cap with the flutted side down on the white matt board and place the thicker clear board over and run it through the machine.
Easy Cheesy! Here it is nice and flat.
If you flip it over you will see that it still has a rubber seal in it... that will need to be removed so that we can glue things inside the cap easily. You can do that a couple different ways and you can find instructions on how to do that in my bottle cap bracelet class at the website; http://www.thestampingstudio.com/new/classes/bottlecapjewelryclass082206.htmThen find some scrap pattern paper or cardstock and stamp your initial on it. I used some leftover packaging from a paper collection. The patterns were reduced which works great for this project! I am using our Calligraphy alphabet stamps and Jet Black StazOn ink.
I then just use my finger to push the glue around and then place the mirror on top of that. It will take a few minutes for that to start to set a few hours for it to dry completely.Flip the cap over and place another blob of Glossy Medium/glue on it and spread it around with your finger.
Place your punched monogram on top of the glue then put more glue on top of that spread around with your finer. This will give it a nice glossy finish as well as make it water-resistant.
Take your large jump ring and twist it open and connect it to your swivel clasp.
Then you will connect the medium jump ring to the large jump ring.
Sometimes it is helpful to use a small jewelers pliers to connect the jump rings. The medium jump ring also gets connected to the bottlecap.
Add some ribbon for a fun touch, or how about a rhinestone? Make one using your school or company logo for fundraising projects.
There ya go!
