1. Trim your 8 1/2" x 11" paper in half to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2". Score each half of paper at 4 1/4".

2. Stamp on  the edge of Whisper White cardstock; the crown in Summer Starfruit, the heart in Raspberry Ripple, the lips in Primrose Petals.
3. Punch out the crown, heart and lips with the 8 petal flower shape from the Itty Bitty punch pack.
4. Punch out a 1/2" circle from Gumball Green, Summer starfruit and Raspberry Ripple.
5. Using a glue dot adhere each 1/2" circle to the interior of the small bottle caps.
6. Using another glue dot, adhere each stamped flower punched image (crown, heart, lips) to the inside of the bottle caps, on top of the cardstock. I put the crown on Raspberry, the heart on Starfruit and the lips on Gumball.
7. Trim the purple pattern of International Bazzaar Designer Series Paper so it is 7 'circles' wide by 3 circles tall. I chose this pattern because it looks like the bottle caps.
8. Trim Whisper White cardstock to 5 1/2" x 3 1/2".
9. Loop Gumball Green ribbon under the purple pattern, tie into a bow. Use paper snips to cut sharp edges.
10. Stamp "Thank You" in Summer Starfruit on Summer Starfruit cardstock twice.
11. Use Bitty Banner Framelit and run through Big Shot Die Cutting Machine according to the appropriate 'sandwich' tab: Clear cutting pad on top, the die, the paper, the cutting pad and the platform on the appropriate tab. Tip: use a sticky note to keep the Framelit die exactly where you want it.
12. Using a a Stampin' Spritzer  filled with rubbing alcohol or a hand sanitizer spray, put 3-5 drops of Frost White Shimmer Paint into the container. Roll back and forth to distribute the paint. Spray your Raspberry Ripple Cardstock 2-3 times. This should dry quickly with a little fanning with your hand as it is alcohol based.
13.  Adhere Whisper White on Raspberry Ripple. Adhere purple patter on Whisper White. Position the ribbon and anchor with a glue dot if desired. Adhere the Starfruit 'thank you's' with glue dots. Adhere your three bottle caps with glue dots.
