On the last episode of Designer MacGyver, I listed some excellent projects you could make with binder clips and give to teachers, if you were so inclined. Though I can’t blame you if you wanted to keep them for yourself, really. They were so cute!

Then, in the comment thread, I spotted an SOS from our own Liz Gray. “P.S. Hoping for a future Designer MacGyver post on *tasteful* ways to use beer bottle caps.” Well, this MacGyver can’t leave a damsel in distress! Liz, let these beer bottle cap crafts come to your rescue. (Underagers, you’ll have to stick to metal soda caps, but with the resurgence of all things retro, finding soda in glass bottles shouldn’t be too much of a problem.)

bottle cap craft magnetsThese bottle cap magnets from Instructables may be a little obvious, but they’re also fun and so simple to make, so they make the cut. Plus, you could use one to display your grocery shopping list and remind you to buy more brewskis. Again, please drink and craft responsibly!

bottle cap craft keychainYou’ll never misplace your keys or accidentally grab someone else’s keychain when you add a cute bottle top to your set. Another in the “so simple, why didn’t I think of that?” vein from Craftbits.com.

bottle cap craft trayHere’s an idea: You could serve some frosty cold bottles of beer from Sweet Something Designs’ colorful beer bottle cap tray. Deliciously meta!

bottle cap backsplashA quirky backsplash makes me weak in the knees, so you know this bottle cap bonanza caught my eye. There are no DIY instructions on the Travel Obsession post, but I did spot some here, in case you want to get down to it.

bottle cap craft placecardsI’m a recently-engaged lady (thank you, thank you) and these bottle cap placecards come from Style Me Pretty, my new fave source for wedding inspiration. The couple who had these at their wedding are beer connoisseurs (the groom’s dad even brews his own), so the idea is a sweet nod to their shared interest.

Did you defuse these bottle cap bombs with plenty of time to spare? This crazy bottle cap tile floor and this truly artistic bottle cap mosaic may be for advanced MacGyvers only.

Which project is your favorite? And do you have any requests for this MacGyver? Shout ‘em out in the comments below.

Non si conoscono ancora le cause del gesto ed grande lo sgomento tra coloro che conoscevano bene il giovane. Anche Patrizio Bertelli e Miuccia Prada hanno voluto mostrare la loro partecipazione al lutto con un necrologio che esce oggi sulla Nazione.
