Bottle Cap Magnets With Decoupaged Clocks

Yet again I have found another tutorial I wanted to try out. I'm starting to see a trend here.....a trend of tutorials. I will post something original soon :) Anyway, I found this tutorial on How About Orange, remembered I had some decoupage and instantly decided I had to do this project. Not long after printing off the clocks I started having friends save up their beer bottle caps and when we moved we found some black and white spray paint and I was ready to go. This is what happened :)

The magnets I used were fairly thick but they still needed a little lift so they would actually touch the fridge.
Before decoupage
After decoupage! I made the beer bottle caps for my cousin Matt and I kept the blue one with the palm trees and the 21+ caps. I also made 3 sets of the 5 clocks. I kept one and gave the other sets to my mom and sister.

So, if you're feeling rather crafty then go get this tutorial, print off the template, and have a little fun! I loved it! I think I may try making my own templates for bottle caps.....that would be pretty cool. We will see though, I'm not sure how that would work.....I just need to do a little experimenting with my computer :D
