What It Is
Klutz's Mini Capsters Jewelry kit lets girls take regular bottle caps and transform them into works of art to wear and share. Kids can decorate the inside of the bottle caps or the outside—or both sides. Squirt some of Klutz's exclusive glaze into a bottle cap and add any of the 250 punch-out art pieces and other embellishments, such as beads and jewels. Follow the instructions on how to turn the decorated caps into an array of jewelry, such as chandelier earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. The book features detailed instructions as well as decorating ideas.
The bottle caps come in two sizes—big and mini. Both sizes have kid-safe edges so that fingers don't get cut and pre-punched holes in the rims, which make it easy to string the bottle caps. Mini Capsters Jewelry includes 15 mini bottle caps; three big bottle caps; 250 art punch-outs; custom Klutz glaze; beads, sequins, and jewels; cord; jump rings; clasps; earring wires; and a ruler printed on the inside back cover.
Why It’s Fun
Kids today might not be familiar with bottle caps, but the Mini Capsters Jewelry kit revives the bottle cap and makes it an attractive and unusual fashion accessory. This is fun and easy creative play for kids who have an interest in making and wearing their own jewelry.

What To Be Aware Of
Additional tools needed include toothpicks, a sharp pair of scissors, needle-nose pliers, paper clips, and nail polish.
You'll need to let the decorated bottle caps dry for a full day before making them into jewelry. If you want to decorate both the inside and outside of the bottle cap, do one side and let it dry for a full day, then decorate the other side and let it dry for five more hours before turning it into jewelry.
