Now with all that said.... on to my project!
I was having such a good time that I created two projects for this challenge! I decide to use bottle caps as my recycled/re purposed item! I have been saving them for sometime and apparently it was for this challenge! :)

The first project I made was this bottle cap Marilyn necklace as a Christmas gift for my Sister.

The second project is an accordion flower, bottle cap Christmas Ornament!!

It's a little difficult to describe what I did to the bottle caps in writing, so here is a video to help you out!

Thanks for the video Regan! I laughed when you said you asked a bunch of random people for the caps, but then corrected yourself - too cute! I love what you created! This would be a perfect project for me to try with my kids. I am going to try this for sure!
