Thank you for joining us here Today I'm going to show you how to remove the plastic liners out of bottle caps. You're familiar with bottle caps in their many applications for making jewelry. There're a lot of fun to work with and oftentimes they are going to come with this plastic liner and if you're like me you've probably tried to just get something under there and tried to peel that liner out and it just doesn't work. It's very frustrating. But there is a very quick and easy solution which will allow you to remove the bottle cap liner What you're going to need is some type of tool to pull the liner out. You're need a surface in which you can get some heat absorbed into. You're going to need a cloth or hot pad to protect your fingers when it gets hot and you're going to need a heat source. I'm using a heat gun. This is used for rubber stamping and other applications. They're pretty readily available. You can also just go ahead and put your bottle cap with the liner in it on the hot plate below your coffee pot where the craft would usually go for about ten to fifteen seconds and then remove and it's going to have the same effect as this heat gun. But for the purpose of this tutorial I wanna show you how to do with the heat gun. So place your bottle cap onto a surface which can handle some heat place your heat gun directly on top of your bottle cap. Okay immediately go ahead use something to protect your fingers. Get your tool underneath you can see it's peeling away. I like to then switched to something that has a little bit more grip to it. Pull that liner out. As you can tell sometimes it does pull off a little bit of the finish on the bottle cap which is totally fine because it's still completely flat so when you apply your image on top there you're not gonna notice that at all. You probably noticed as I was applying my heat gun, I went in a little bit of a circular motion around the cap. That just help to distribute the heat evenly. And that's really all there is to it. It's quick. It's easy and it's a great solution for removing those liners from your bottle caps. Go to for all of your beading supplies needs!
