Beer Bottle Cap Coasters

Know someone with a big bottle cap collection? Up-cycle the caps & show them off by making coasters! I made these for my husband as a gift, using only part of his hoard. He's been saving them for years and keeping them in an old popcorn tin. Each coaster is unique!
To make:
3.5in x 3.5in plywood squares
3.25in x 3.25in cork squares
small translucent craft gems (find at any craft store in the floral section)
Decorative Oval Glass Gems

extra strength super glue
bottle caps (make sure they are mostly flat)

1. glue cork squares to rough side of plywood and let dry
2. dab a bit of glue onto back of a bottle cap, then press the rounded side of 1 stone onto the cap.
3. Dab a bit of glue onto the flat side of the stone, then press onto the plywood square.
4.Hold in place for several seconds.
5. Repeat steps for desired number of coasters.
