Bottle Cap Necklace Pendent

I saved a bunch of bottle caps, I knew they would come in handy one day for a craft project.
Supplies Needed:
Scrap Paper with small pattern
Diamond glaze or clear glaze
Bottle caps Cleaned
Large Jump rings
Pointed end dagger
needle nose pliers
First you will need to make two holes about 1/4 inch apart on your bottle cap, using the pointed end dagger, I got this from a eyelet kit from Making Memories
Now you will need to spread apart your jump ring with your needle nose pliers so the ends fit into the holes you made on the bottle cap.
With the needle nose pliers close the jump ring
Now you will need to cut a small circle out of your paper. Pick  part of the paper you want to have shown on your necklace. I traced around the bottle cap then cut a little smaller then the traced circle. The circle doesn't need to be perfect, jut enough to cover the majority of the inside circle of the bottle cap.

Glue your circle in with glue, then glaze the top of the paper with the diamond or paper glaze.
Let it dry and there you go a recycled necklace pendent.You can dress it up with beads, string, chain. I would love to see what you do with this, make a comment and send a link to your website!
