TUTORIAL: Turkey Feather Napkin Rings + GIVEAWAY!

I released my Thanksgiving Bottle Cap Images a couple of weeks ago and am still having fun with them!  Of course, I made up my favorite bottle cap items first - zipper pulls, necklaces and key chains... everyone loves those! But... I also added a FREE checker board printable to this set as well (download HERE).  All you have to do is print/laminate your board, pick your pawns, make two sets of twelve and off you go!  All of these are also perfect "day of" Thanksgiving activities to keep the kids entertained while the moms chat and the dads watch football!

I always love seeing how other creative minds use my images, so I sent my collection to Erika at Fizzy Pops and she came up with a Felt Turkey Feather Napkin Ring + is sponsoring a giveaway with A Busy Little Bird (details at the bottom)! 

SUPPLIES NEEDED: Flat Bottle Caps & Epoxy Stickers (from Fizzy Pops, of course), Fall Felt Collection (from A Busy Little Bird), 1" Round Punch and E6000 Glue (from any craft store) and these DARLING images from Yours Truly. ;)

First up... you need to get your bottle caps ready.  Using your punch, punch out the design and attach it (image side up) to the epoxy sticker.  Using your finger or a credit card - press on the back to smooth out any bubbles.  Next, use a pea-sized dab of E6000 glue to attach.  EASY PEASY!

Next... get your felt cut and glued together. Start by cutting the felt you'll be using for your feathers into small strips (approx 1/2" wide x 2.5" tall), then free-hand trim into feather shapes. Next, grab a strip of dark brown felt and trim a piece for your "ring" (approx 3/4" wide by 5.5" long).  In the center of the ring strip... apply glue, then stack your feathers in a fanning shape like shown.  Then, glue the bottle cap to the felt and complete the ring by gluing the ends together.  Let sit for a few hours to dry.     

CUTE, huh!!!
