Have you flattened the soda pop top yet?


Stamp Set: Dapper Dad, Sweet Essentials
Ink: midnight muse, black stazon ink
Paper: Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Midnight Muse, White, brushed silver, Comfort Café DSP
Tools: Big Shot, honeycomb embossing folder, label framelits, 1" circle punch
Accessories: soda bottle caps, crystal effects, dimensionals

Tips: Stamp the watch with stazon and then use the circle punch to punch out the face.  No need to stamp the watch twice since you will cover the hole.  Open your big shot accessory pad all the way.  Put down one cutting pad and put a bottle camp UPSIDE DOWN and top it with the other cutting pad and run through.  Adhere the watch face to the bottle cap and then cover it with a generous amount of crystal effects.

I fell in love with this card the second I saw it.  What an ingenious idea to flatten the large bottle cap and use on the watch from the Dapper Dad set.  We did this at my spring class last week.  You can't see it in the picture, but there is crystal effects on top of the face of the watch to make it look like glass.
