Cute Kids Craft! Bottle Cap Pins (or magnets)

Hi friends! A while back I asked my niece (who then asked her young and single friends) to save me bottle caps and I was rewarded with a bounty of them! I teach a monthly free kids class at the local library and I wanted a fun way to use some of them up and here is what I came up with. A fall craft for kids. Watch the video:

Fun huh? all you need is paper, bottle caps, glue, google eyes and some circle punches or small coins to trace. So…does anyone else have any bottle cap craft ideas? Leave them in the comments below and til next time happy crafting!

WOYWW Another Week, Another Mess!

Hello folks! For those of you following along in my resin adventure I am happy to report that after 3 days my resin is hard and glassy, it was bit dicey for a while and it didn’t help that I kept visiting my creations and poking them to see if they were cured yet. Note to self: KEEP YOUR GRIMY PAWS OFF THE RESIN! So for those of you at home who want specifics it took 3 days to cure my polyester resin (mixed per package directions) with a room temperature around 70 and humidity at 66%. Higher temperature and lower humidity would have taken less time I suspect. Hey, here is a fun fact, thicker pieces take less time to cure, it seems that resin makes it’s own heat that speeds it’s curing process, Good to know. Also, don’t stick your fingernails in the resin to see if it cured…just sayin. BTW it is What’s on your workdesk Wednesday! On my desk are some bottle-cap resin rings and barrettes I just glued, paint from a project I just finished and other assorted supplies…
