Learning to make a Bottle Cap Pet ID
Discover ways to produce a Bottle Cap Pet I.D. for either your cat or dog. Bottle caps can be a fun craft material for a number of projects and so i have used them for scrapbooking and hair bow centers. And, recently, Kitty used bottle caps as embellishments on her behalf lollipop party favors. Did you know bottle caps also obtain the most adorable pet tags?
1. Start out with craft bottle caps. I made the decision to make a few tags and so i chose several fun colors.

2. Next, the bottle caps need to be flattened. To flatten my bottle caps I prefer to make use of my Cuttlebug. While using the Cuttlebug I place the bottle cap face on plate A. Then I stack 2 B plates in addition to the bottle cap and crank it through. If you don’t use a Cuttlebug, the bottle caps can be even be flattened by using a hammer. Put the bottle cap on a piece of wood, cover the bottle cap with a piece of cloth, place another bit of wood at the top, and hammer.
3. I flattened all 3 bottle caps with the Cuttlebug. I drilled a hole in one in the bottle caps and attached a jump ring. However, I know that not everybody may gain access to a drill with small drill bits so I came up with an alternative way of another two.
4. Don’t gain access to a drill? Why not use some of the left Craft Bow Wire to make a hanger? While using leftover Craft Wire fold it by 50 percent and knot to make a small loop. Hot glue the knot into the metal crease in the cap, along with hot gluing the ends for the cap.
5. Using scrapbooking paper cut circles to put into the dog tag bottle caps add the pet id information.
6. Position the circle scrapbooking paper onto the epoxy domes and use Glue Dots or tacky glue to carry it together around the caps.
7. Add small curling ribbon bows into the bottle caps. Start by placing the metric side from the Hair Bow Tool & Ruler onto the Mini Craft. Cut 25cm of curling ribbon and set it in to the Mini Craft. Fold the ends from the curling ribbon underneath the Mini Craft.

8. Cut 250cm of curling ribbon then cut the ends in the ribbon in an angle. Fold the ribbon by 50 percent to create a crease. Set the ribbon at the crease mark into the Mini Craft.
9. Fold the curling ribbon in the 1.5cm mark to produce a loop with the tail up.
10. Fold the ribbon with the 1.5cm on the reverse side with the tail facing up higher than the loop.
11. Fold each tail on the 1. 5cm to generate two more loops.
12. Scrunch down using the Mini Craft wand.
13. Whilst the bow continues to be inside the Mini Craft, tie the curling ribbon together.
14. Pull the curling ribbon tightly even though the bow remains to be from the Mini Craft.
15. Gently pull the bow out from the Mini Craft and tie the back of the bow using the curling ribbon.
16. Trim away excess curling ribbon and fluff bow.
17. Attach the bow and hot glue the bow to the crease from the bottle cap.
18. Attach a jump ring or lanyard hook in the bottle cap pet id on the dog collar.
19. This is my little Mandy rocking and posing together with her new bottle cap pet id tag. To take pictures I used a lanyard hook however for her to use it normally it will be attached using a jump ring in order that it doesn’t dangle very long. These are typically decorative bottle cap pet ids. Please be sure all of the parts are glued securely, there are actually no sharp edges, and that the bottle cap id is attached securely to the collar.
