Since I got such a wonderful positive response to yesterday's posting, I thought I would add a couple more. This is the snowman set. The snowmen are from a wheel and two different sets. To make these I put a pop dot in a (yes, Lana) beer bottle cap or a wine cooler if you want gold, added some white ep to reduce the transparency of the paper. The poured on UTEE and baked. I did this (adding UTEE) a couple of times making the coating extra thick and a little weighty. I finished off by putting a pin on the back (little secret ~ I'm actually wearing these as I took the picture)

Eileen ~ sorry for the confusion. You stamp the image and color it before punching it with the 1" punch. Then you put the pop dot and the white EP in the bottom of the bottle cap. Then you add the picture. Then the UTEE and bake. And it is bake in the toaster oven. You do this because you need the whole thing to heat up in order for the white EP under the picture to melt. Once the UTEE is melted add additional layers of UTEE and you can either melt them with a heat gun or back in the toaster oven. When the UTEE is hot, additional layers stick to it so it doesn't blow around. Does that make more sense?
