Hey everybody! Have you ever seen a mini album made from artist trading coins?! Well, I’m here to share one with you today! I love all kinds of ATCs (cards, coins and cubes) but I rarely trade them as the name suggests, lol! The motivational artist trading coins in this mini album are double-sided and feature our amazing Pop Tone cardstock which is one of my favorite lines! I used Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock for the coins themselves, and Pop Tone Banana Split, Berrylicious, Blue Raspberry, Cotton Candy, Gumdrop Green, and Spearmint cardstock paired with a variety of patterned papers for the layers.
Create Coins and Layers
I punched six artist trading coins from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock using a Fiskars 2-1/2″ circle punch. Next, I punched 12 circles (using the same Fiskars 2-1/2″ circle punch) from a variety of 6×6 patterned papers. Similarly, using several dies and a scalloped circle punch, I cut/punched a variety of shapes from Pop Tone Banana Split, Berrylicious, Blue Raspberry, Cotton Candy, Gumdrop Green, and Spearmint cardstock.
I adhered a patterned paper circle and a Pop Tone cardstock shaped element to each side of all six coins. I punched a hole at the top of each coin and added a clear hole reinforcement to each.
I added botanical laser cuts, pearls or gemstones, and a motivational sentiment sticker to each side of all six coins.
The final step was fastening the coins together with a tiny gold ball chain and clasp.
