Orange and Black with Kerri

Hey Tando peeps!!  Today's project is a little out of the box but I'm completely in love with it!!!  I made some cute little bottle cap key chains!!  There are 2 pictures of each one as I wanted you to be able to see all of the glass beads that I used.

I was inspired to make these by Sabrina Ann on YouTube.

First I flattened out the bottle cap with my Sizzix Big Shot and then punched a whole in the top and bottom of the cap with a bottle cap punch.  Then I used a 1 inch circle punch and punched out a circle using black card stock.  I adhered the card stock inside the bottle cap using a wet glue.  I then gessoed and painted the Tando's Mini Flower with Pumpkin Orange acrylic paint.  I did a couple layers of the orange until I got the covering that I wanted.  I adhered the Mini Flowers in the bottle cap using wet glue.  After ensuring that the glue was dry I covered the entire area with Dimensional Mod Podge.  While the Mod Podge was still wet I sprinkled a little Mustard Seed and Black Soot distress glitter on top.  I then let them dry for about 3 hours and then filled in any areas that were missed and let them dry again.  

Once they were looking how I wanted them to and they were dry I used a jump ring to attach a lobster clasp to the top.  I then made 3 bead dangles and used 2 links of chain and some jump rings to attach them.

I hope I did a good job at explaining these.  If you have any questions please just ask me or if you would like to see a tutorial you can check out Sabrina Ann's on YouTube or just ask and I will make one.  Please don't be surprised if you see more of these in the future from me, I had so much fun making them!!!!
