Bottle Cap Embellishment with Lyne | Technique

Hi Everyone!

Lyne here with a bottle cap embellishment tutorial for ScrapMuch!?  I'll be showing you how to create the cap I used on my Cool Kid layout.   Here's a close up...

For this you will need some bottle caps, a manual die cut machine, liquid adhesive, a 1 inch circle punch and some epiphany crafts epoxy stickers in size 14. To get started set your die cut machine up with platform one.

Place your clear cutting pad down, then the bottle cap facing down, and the top clear plate.


Once you run it through the machine you'll end up with something like this:

I do find that the cap you use does make a difference.  I found some at hobby lobby that were on clearance with a soda design on the back.  They don't work so well as they tend to flatten too much, but the Spare Parts caps work perfectly. 

Now use your circle punch to punch out the design you are looking to make into an embellishment.

Place some strong liquid glue on the cap and then place your circle punch on top.  Allow to dry for a few seconds.

Lastly, apply your epoxy cap and you're ready to use.  (Conversely, if your do not own this Epiphany Crafts tool you can use Glossy Accents to add a nice shiny top coat to your embellishment.)

You can also do this, but use the back of the cap instead.

I did this on my Scrappy Friends layout.  This one I had a hard time getting a good photo of, but if you go check out the layout it's on the right hand side at the top.

I hope you've learned something new today, and I'd love to see what you create using this technique. 

Until next time...Happy Scrapping!


  1. Wow! Lyne this is awesome!!! Hope I can find some caps that works here in Sweden. Tryed som odinary from a bottle but it did not work well. It looks so pretty!!! Thanks for the tip!! Hugs Anna :-)

  2. I've always wondered which way to pop on the bottlecaps on my big shot - so THANKYOU!!! Looks great with the epoxy dot covers, too:)

    1. Thanks Lizzy...I try using them with some flair too...sometimes they fit just right and add an extra touch
