ARTISTS TRADING COINS Swap - Postmark by November 5th

 Now that the wonderful Hand-Decorated Papers have been distributed, let's use bits of them as part of a new endeavor:  Artists Trading Coins.  These "coins" are circles that measure 2+1/2" across, and may have designs on one side or both sides.  Check out some YouTubes for inspiration.

NOTE:  If you were unable to participate in the recent Hand-Decorated Papers group swap, you may use your own decorated papers which you have on hand.
If you have a 2+1/2" paper punch, you are very fortunate.  Others may use a jar cover or other circular object that measures 2+1/2" across as a template or pattern to cut out the circle shape.
Consider making your COINS sturdy, but not too thick.  I have used several layers of card stock glued together or a thin cardboard base for collage on both sides.  Sealing the final layer of collage with ModPodge or a gel medium makes for a nice finish.
