Bottle Cap Hair Clips

Yep, I haven't played with my caps lately but I got this really cool craft tool and it's made it a lot more fun. The Xyron Sticker Maker, (find out more here)
Xyron XRN510 Creative Station Multi-Use Crafting Machine with Permanent-Adhesive Cartridge

I love this thing, it makes anything you can roll through it, paper, ribbon, fabric, into a sticker, (permanent and removable), magnet and it even laminates. There are various sizes but mine is the 5 inch and it's plenty big enough for me.

Anyways I grabbed my supplies:

1" Flattened Bottle Cap
1" Circle Epoxy Stickers
Bottle Cap Punch 1 Inch
Glue ( I ended up using super glue the stuff pictured was no good, hot glue would also work)
Hair Pins

I made the caps just the same as my bottle cap advent except instead of gluing I ran the images through the sticker maker and and just punched out what I needed. This actually means when the mood strikes, I can grab the left over ones and whip up something in no time! Then once the bottle cap was made I stuck it on the the pin. 

DIY Delight or Disaster? Delight, cute and done in a matter of minutes...not including drying time. The only undelightful this about this was my model was feeling a little diva-ish and refused to put them in her hair, she wanted ribbons today. 

Thanks for reading,
