The Pop Top Ice Drop pattern works with both types of bottle caps! With the flattened bottle cap, the pattern lies more to the back, and with the regular bottle cap, the pattern is toward the top of the bottle cap creating a sort of shadow box effect. I really like it!
Here are the two types of bottle caps. The top is the regular one, and the bottom is the flattened one. No, I will not be flattening bottle caps. I would just make a mess of them, and they're not expensive.
If you think of the ten back ring, front ring, chain repeats as the basic pattern, I'll bet you can think of all sorts of pattern possibilities.
I didn't paint the back with glitter nail polish as I did with the flattened bottle cap yesterday. There is a difference in the fit. I thought the regular bottle cap would be a tighter fit, but it turned out that the flattened bottle cap fit more snugly.
For those of you who like to see which shuttles I used, here's the shuttle shot!
