Bottle Cap Magnets

Today I have some really cute bottle cap magnets to share with you! They are just so darn cute it's ridiculous! I found some pictures of Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and Pluto online and used My Digital Studio to print them out on Whisper White card stock. Then I punched them out with my 1" Circle Punch and used a bit of Tombow Multi-Purpose Adhesive to glue them into the bottle caps. Then I covered the image in the bottle caps with Crystal Effects. After the Crystal Effects dried I used E6000 glue to adhere a magnet onto the back of the bottle cap.

So simple! However, I learned one thing. Inkjet printer ink will bleed when you apply too thick a coat of Crystal Effects. I think next time I make these I will coat the front and back of the card stock with Modge Podge before I punch them out. That should prevent the bleeding, or just take more time and add a thinner layer of Crystal Effects. I still think they're cute though!

Thanks for stopping by! 


  1. Another idea to keep ink from bleeding is to cover the image.back and front. with clear contact paper. This acts as a barrier. Works great!
