Bottle Top Challenge for Crafty Cardmakers

Before I begin I need to apologise for being late with my post, its been a bit mad here with all the sunshine, the dogs and looking after extra children, great fun but a bit mad all the same.
So Paula asked us to use bottle tops for this weeks spotlight challenge, I was sent some bottle tops by the lovely Lin and made this flower fridge magnet which I am sending to my niece as she has a little collection of them and I thought this would make an nice addition.
I used a fabric flower I got on the pier at Llandudno, filled the bottle top with glitter glue so the bits on show would be sparky, added a paper flower and a large gem for the middle. I added some magnets to the back and I was done. I would never have thought to make magnets with bottle tops without Paula's challenge and am planning to do some more.

What a great idea to make a fridge magnet, love your flower :o) I must admit I tried to make something with a bottle top but my creation was so rubbish it got scrapped! Lisa x
