Bottle Cap Magnets

Yay for Friday! :)  I hope you all had a wonderful week!  I wanted to share a quick and affordable gift idea that was a huge hit for Christmas, but would make a fantastic gift for Valentine's Day too.

I saw these first over at Lemon Tree Creations and thought they would be the perfect gift for grandparents and aunts and uncles! 


I followed Tiffany's easy tutorial and found the cute, little tins at Wal-Mart.  They even had bows already on them.  Everyone thought they were the cutest and I couldn't resist making a set for me too.


I ended up buying a few more tins at Wal-Mart after Christmas because I love this idea.  I also found some non-Christmasy ones at Hobby Lobby on clearance a few days ago.  Hmm...what else can I put on bottle caps?  :)

I think any grandparent would love a set of these with all their grandkiddos on them for Valentine's Day, don't you think? 

Have a wonderful weekend! I'll be linking up to these fantastic parties! :)
