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.
