HERE ARE THE 3 EASY STEPS

1. Cut your artwork or photos into 1'' circles. If using the free printable, cut out the pieces you want to the edges. Try to make sure you get off all the white from the edges.

2. Using double sided tape or glue, stick the circles into your bottle cap.

3. Now attach the magnets to the back of the caps using double sided tape or glue if it is not self adhesive.

And you're done, it's literally easy as 1,2,3! Now use your magnets to attach photos, cards and more to your fridge or use the letters to leave a message for family or a welcome greeting.
