    you should have a flat round piece of metal.
    if there are messages on de sides of the cap youre cap is done(i did so with the aloha-cap) but you can also make the metal-plates smaller by cutting them ,you can even cut them into form with a wire-cutter.

    all you need to do now is, to glue the bottlecaps to your magnets.i used old magnets from ugly ones i didnt like anymore, but i think you can buy magnets in craftstores and building centers. i used hot-glue but superglue might do well.
