Bottle Cap Embellishment

Went to Archiver's for their make n take. The necklaces were no longer available, but we could make the bottle caps and add a chain or not later. I choose a flattened bottle cap. Stamped a saying on dark kraft paper, cut it to fit in the bottle cap. Then UTEE (an embossing enamel) was poured into the bottle cap, set in a Melting Pot to heat and melt the UTEE. Once the UTEE had cooled, punched a hole in the bottle cap to add a jump ring (I'll add a charm later) and added a red rhinestone. Was placed back in the UTEE to sink the rhinestone into the UTEE a bit.  This will become an embellishment at some point. Fun to get in some art time while away from home.
