OMG It's amazing considering it used to be a bottle cap LOL! =D

I'd never have looked at a bottle cap before and thought of doing anything like this with it!

Brilliant! =)

No need to apologize Georgia!
Maybe I came across as rude or offended through my posts, but I'm seriously not. What I mentioned about having multiple how-tos for the same project applies, in my opinion, to all projects.
I DO celebrate and support creativity and honestly believe that sharing is caring Happy
Don't worry about turning your how-to into a version, seriously.

See, I wouldn't have said anything if it wasn't the for the strong and obvious resemblance to the one I posted... I know my project has been featured in other sites, maybe she saw it in one of them. Or maybe it is just a BIG coincidence.

I never claimed that this locket was my idea, I also learned how to make it at school, so I know it isn't something I came up with and it's certainly not the FIRST one ever made.

I just think it's useless to have two or three how-tos for the same thing, specially in this case, being the steps and the design exactly the same...
I, for one, do have the care of searching the site prior to posting to see if it has been made before. If it has, I'll post it as a version (wich I think is way more usefull than, again, having several tutorials for the same outcome) Maybe I'm the only one doing it.

Anyway, and on a brighter side, yes, Georgia's locket looks mighty cute Happy

Oh well it's very cute and the steps are very clear, Georgia!

Perhaps the other project was first on this site but officially the other project wasn't really the FIRST one... see! I found one of March 2009 http://www.spottedcanary.com/Bottle_Cap_Locket.htm

I remember doing this at school and it's a simple enough project to come up with so stop nagging and celebrate each others creativity Happy

*shrugs* There's lots of repeating projects on here. Besides, she probably didn't know.
Doesn't change the fact that it's cute. Good job girl! Happy
