Read instructions thoroughly and gather all needed materials. Cover your work area with craft or newspaper.
Unscrew the head from the base of the stopper.
Try to find a scene on a piece of Toile large enough to cover the stopper top. Use the stopper head as a pattern. Place it over the picture and trace around it with a pencil.
Put on your safety glasses. Nip out the shape with your wheeled nippers. Wipe off the Toile with water and a lint free cloth, dry thoroughly.
Peel 2-3 inches of the paper-backing off the copper foil tape.
Hold the foil with the adhesive side up and center the Toile edge on the foil, leaving equal amounts showing on either side of the Toile. Fold edges over the Toile and press firmly, continue this process until you have covered all the edges of the Toile. Burnish the tape to the glass with a fid or the side of a pencil.
Squeeze a dollop of E-6000® on the back of the Toile. Press firmly on the bottle stopper top. Hold in place until dry with a binder clip or a clothes pin. Embellish with buttons as show in the photograph. Glue them in place with E-6000®. Once the buttons have dried securely to the Toile, screw the stopper head to the base.
