Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

Welcome to my NEW blog! For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for almost 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Vintage Bottle Cap Cabinet Knobs

I found these vintage bottle caps at an antique shop in Virginia and knew just what I wanted to do
with them!  Find my full instructions on how to use Beacon Adhesives and ETI Envirotex resin to create your own bottle cap knobs here in my most recent Cindi's Simple Solutions article at When Creativity Knocks.

Whether you use vintage soda bottle caps, caps from your favorite soda, or caps from fun assorted beers collected on vacations, making custom bottle cap cabinet knobs is an easy and affordable option for a fun twist in your home-decor! 
  • Bottle caps 
  • Jewelry pliers 
  • Small flat top cabinet knobs (small enough to fit beneath the caps when they are slightly flared)
  • ETI EnviroTex™ Jewelry Resin  (www.ETI-USA.com)
  • Beacon™ 527 Adhesives (www.BeaconAdhesives.com
1. Use jewelry pliers to slightly bend/flare rim of bottle caps outward to fit over knob. 
2. Mix EnviroTex™ Jewelry Resin according to manufacturer instructions.
3. Apply a light coat to the face of each bottle cap.  Set aside to cure 24 hours.  
4. Fill inside of bottle cap completely with Beacon™ 527 adhesive.  
5.  Carefully insert bottle cap over adhesive. Carefully wipe any adhesive that may run out of cap (I used a cotton swab to do this). 

6.  Let dry 24-36 hours until adhesive is completely dry and cap is adhered to knob.
