ATC Trading Coins

Thinking of those whose homes and lives are in the path of the hurricane-Stay safe.

I have some more ATC Trading coins to share I have also made them for a FB swap on UK Stampers Forum-the theme is ATG, we also swap ATCs/postcards/tags and inches and more recently banners will post that another day.Now I even remembered to take pic too!!!
First of all I used a copy paper sheet that has been used to stamp on instead of cleaning stamps and also oddments of left over colour.

Then chose sections to cut the coins out of using a scalloped circle die from Creative Dies.

These pieces were then stuck onto the die-cut coins for strength and stamped on using part of a craft mag freebie set-distress inked edges and done!!!
