We have been altering bottle caps on the forum for a swap (I'll show you those next week!). I was determined to find a way to flatten them in the Cuttlebug, and it didn't take long at all!
The bottle caps I have used are those you buy for home brewing. They come in bags of 50 for a couple of pounds. I bought mine from E-Bay - they were £1.50 for 100! I have tried this method of flattening with saved beer caps from Jesper's beer, but it doesn't work - you need the home brewing kind! However, I have managed to flatten the saved caps with a mallet, which you can see details of in Issue 1 of the www.timeforcrafting.co.uk E-Mag.
Here's the video - if you prefer photos you can see those below.
First place your bottle caps flat side down on the thick white A mat.
Place a Cuttlebug die metal side down on top of them.
Place your clear B mat on top, and put it through the Cuttlebug.
I made mine into cool business cards!
I used a silver Krylon pen on the outside. I printed my logo in a small size, then punched them out with a 1" circle punch.
I glued this to the bottom of the cap,
then covered it with glossy accents,
then sprinkled some fine glitter gently over it.
