Fabulous Friday Tutorial - Bombshell Bottle Cap Rings

Hi Bombshells!

Kim here with a Fabulous Friday Tutorial! How to create your own Bombshell Bottle Cap Rings.
-Bombshell Stamps (I used Tattoo Font and Madonna Woodcut)
-Patterned Paper or Alcohol Markers (I used Spectrum Noir)
-bottlecaps - these can be purchased at a craft store (these I got from PickYourPlum.com)
-Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Round 25 Tool
-Epiphany Crafts Clear Bubble Caps Round 25
-Ring Blanks - Adjustable with pad
-Glossy Accents
-E6000 Glue
- toothpick
- gloves (optional)
First stamp your image onto patterned paper (or white cardstock if you are using alcohol markers)
Next place your cardstock into the Epiphany Crafts Tool so that your image is in the center.
Place one of the Clear Bubble Caps into the center, close the lid, then press down to cut out your shape.
Adhere this round circle into the bottom of the bottlecap with Glossy Accents. I have not had an issue with them falling out using the Glossy Accents, but if you do experience the image falling out you may need to use a different glue. Using the clear bubble caps is wonderful if you are not so great with using resin (or getting all those bubbles out of the resin!).
Let these bottlecaps dry completely. Once dry, turn them over and lightly scuff the middle with a sanding tool or an emery board. This will help adhere the ring pad to the back of the bottlecap.
 Then adhere the bottlecap and ring pad together using E6000 glue in a well ventilated area. Make sure that your image is facing the correct way when placing the ring pad on! Let the rings dry completely for at least 24 hours.
Once they are dry, they are ready to wear! Go rock out with your new Bombshell rings!
Use your favorite Bombshell images to make them your own! Happy Crafting!
