I attached a hook to the cabinet and hung this bucket directly under the bottle opener as a simple way to collect all of the caps. You can't see it in this pic, but my recycling bins for glass, plastic, aluminum, and cardboard are under this cabinet also. I find if you make recycling as easy as possible then it's easier to get the men in your life to do it also!
One of David's friends who goes to music festivals with us thinks that I should sell these if I could make enough of them. Depending on how well this first one turns out I may ask a friend of mine who works at a local bar to start keeping their caps for me. I think with enough caps I could make an entire curtain of just Budweiser, or Rolling Rock, or Land Shark (one of my new favorites!) And just in case you were wondering - no, I didn't drink all of these myself. Our apartment tends to be the hangout place for friends and since we recycle the bottles I initially just wanted to find another use for the caps. Here's a small view of the cabinets in our kitchen.
I've resorted all of the different caps into bags and an empty egg carton so I can make the strands as random as possible. Also as you can see they are sort of out in the middle of the floor - I figure the more I trip over them the more I'll think about working on the curtain. I'm going to attempt to finish a strand a week.
