25 Days of {homemade} Christmas Gifts-Day22 bottle cap magnets

If your like me, I have an abundance of bottle caps at my house. And if you know me, you know that I recycle. What better way to recycle then take something headed for the landfill and give it a new life!

For this project I used the following supplies;

bottlecaps, washed and dried
scrapbook paper
sticky gems
Glossy accents.

If you remember way back on day 2, I made a bottle cap necklace. For these magnets, you begin by decorating them the same way. Cut out your paper and decorate it however you want to. Use some Glossy Accents inside the cap to attach your paper. If you need to see step by step with pictures, check out Day 2's post.

On the back, attach some craft magnets, and your all done!

If you would like to have this set, please leave a comment telling me and how to get in touch with you. I will pick one person to send them too!

Leave a comment on any post for a chance to win a Michael's gift card. We are almost done with our 25 days, so time is running out! Happy holiday crafting!

Great idea. And, as a toddler gift you could make out the whole alphabet with fun colors and fonts. Thank you for sharing. I think I'm going to make a set for my nephew.
