be still ATC coin

A little over a year ago I made my first ATC Coin. They are similar to the ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) which are 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ but these are 2 1/2″ circles instead. Here I used Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps Vintage Love, Art Deco Alpha, and Happy Camper. I stamped the typewriter directly onto a patterned paper scrap and added some white paint pen highlights.

I participated in a few trades of these coins and I’ve been on the lookout for a cylindrical container to keep them in. They sort of remind me of a larger version of the Pogs that our kids had years ago! Remember those? Well, I hadn’t seen any containers until one evening on a shopping trip to Walmart when I spied a Pringles can. LOL.

I washed the inside of that empty can and cut some patterned papers to cover it. Then I stamped the alpha on the top section and adhered the papers and some ribbon with Scor-Tape.

Here’s my finished container…

Try the ATC Coins… they are a lot of fun! Have a great day!
