I've been super addicted to Maya Roads bottle caps and if you didn't see in the CHA previews they have come out with a new 4" size! I thought I would share a project I made for CHA with you today.
Maya Road 4" bottle caps
Echo Park Little Boy line
3 3/4" circle punch
This project might seem a little daunting but really it is very simple to construct! I laid out my bottle caps in a pattern I liked. Then using a marker mark your bottle caps where you want them to connect. Keep in mind you want to attach them on as many sides as they touch. This will keep your wall hanging sturdy. Simply punch holes in the bottle caps with your crop-a-dile and attach them all together using sturdy ribbon.
All of Maya's bottle caps are an even number- 2, 3 & 4 inches. When cutting circles all sizes are exactly 1/4" less then the size you are using. So for these you will need to cut or punch out 3 3/4" circles to layer your bottle caps with.
I used paint to cover the chipboard pieces of the super nova set and then sprayed them with Maya Mist to created a pearlized look.
I finished up decorating with stickers from Little Boy. A tip to using stickers on altered projects is to layer the backside with extra chipboard pieces or card stock to give them heft and stability!
I would love to see your projects created using bottle caps, link them up to us on Facebook or here on the blog!
