Soda Pop

Materials
  • Paper
  • Clear packing tape
  • Quarter
  • Tacky glue
  • Bottle cap
  • Sequins, rhinestones, beads, googly eyes, and other small decorations
  • Clear sealant
  • Hot glue
  • 1/2-inch-wide magnet
Total Time Needed: 1-2 Hours
Instructions
  1. Start by choosing a piece of paper for the collage base. Cover both sides of the paper with clear packing tape (the liquid sealant you’ll use later might discolor it otherwise). Using a quarter as a template, cut a circle from the covered paper and use tacky glue to affix it to the inside of a bottle cap.
  2. Now, add sequins, rhinestones, beads, googly eyes — anything that’s fairly flat and small — with glue. Let the glue dry, then brush on a generous coat of clear sealant.
  3. When the sealant is dry, use hot glue to attach a strong 1/2-inch-wide magnet to the back of the cap.  (Optional step)

–Although I will modify this project to use readily available supplies, I can’t wait to try this out with my elementary school class. We have oodles of bottle caps in Cape Verde — a perfect way to promote recycling and creativity.  Thanks, FamilyFun.
