Making Artist Trading Coins has become a favorite pastime of mine! I have cut bunches of 2-1/2" circles out of scraps of paper--some as ready-made backgrounds and others as backing for the "coins" to give them a bit of strength. I keep a pad of Tim Holtz' "Small Talk" stickers on my craft table and I can create a coin in just minutes. Remember, crafting is cheaper than professional therapy!

The coin I made today is for a Stampotique Designers Challenge and features Bowtie. If you want to have a bit of fun, check out the challenge here.

Thanks for stopping by today and for taking a moment to leave a comment. Both are important to me!



  1. 'Crafting is cheaper than therapy' wonderfully true, Kay! :D Loving your coin and what must be a very teeny tiny easel!

  2. Cool coin Kay and yes, crafting might very well be cheaper than therapy. And much more satisfying. I am addicted to these coins as well. They are such a fun size. Love this image. Did you see the something beginning with B challenge at Lost Coast?? Hugz

  3. Bowtie looks fabulous here Kay, and it's a great idea to have them pre-cut, ready for when inspiration strikes! xx
