Little gifts that say they are appreciated.

Do you have a hairdresser, is the supermarket person always friendly, how about the Barrista who keeps you fueled?  Here is a little something that simply says.... Thanks.   Emerald Creek has offered us some inspiration this month and we like to pass it forward!
These can be multi-purpose gifts.   They can be placed on a hanger as an ornament, have a pin back added or have magnets on them.  You can simply have the bottle cap or add it to a snowflake like this one.  Doesn't have to be for Christmas but can serve as a gift for anyone of any faith.

Start with our collage #3084 and bottle caps, new or used.  Clear or shimmery Embossing Powder makes it an instant gift!

A 1 inch punch is the perfect tool (or you can fussy cut the circles) for the collage images.  Glue into the bottle caps & allow to dry.   Apply clear embossing powder over the images, add some glitter if you like. 

See our fantastic Scor Pal and Once upon a Time accessories and tools.  The bottle cap cutting dies make for accurate cutting, the clear domed stickers can be used to seal the images in place if you do not have clear embossing powder.
 The Scor-Tape 6x6 inch sheets can be cut to any size and applied to the collage sheets for easy placement of images.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.

Get on Over!
