Christmas: Artistic Trading Coins with Irit

 Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit from Irit Shalom Designs is here today with my first project made with the most adorable and newest Yuletide Carol collection.
This is a totally traditional Christmas collection- colors, designs and sayings .
But I decided to make totally new and not so traditional Artistic Trading Coins set.

 Let me explain you a bit about Artistic Trading coins first.
Most of us met and made ATC- Artistic Trading Cards- the small cards that fit the baseball cards plastic pockets.
Some of us even made Artistic Trading Cubes- 3'' cubes embellished from all 4 sides and on the top that can be folded and mailed in the envelope.
Artistic Trading Coins are the new thing that became trendy  during last few months and actually it's 2.5'' cardstock/chipboard/paper/ wooden circle that is pretty flat as we need to swap them and to mail them inside the envelope.
So here are my take of this new trend using this adorable Christmas collection.
I made 6 coins in the same colors and in the same designs.
Each and every " coin" has two cardstock circle layers and then Combo stickers, layered chipboards and Noteworthy die cuts from the very same collections were added on the top.
Some of the coins were embellished with BoBunny die cut from dies, brads, jewels or buttons.
Yet they are still very flat and you can mail them inside the regular envelope.
The first one here has a die cut candle, die cut cardstock layer and some jewels one it.

The second coin was embellished with gold heat embossed wooden shapes, Noteworthy die cuts and jewels.

This coin was covered with Gold glitter paste on the edges.

 The next one has a die cut layer made from the collection cardstock.

The next one is very similar to the second piece, but still totally different.

 The last one is the fanciest one as there are heart die cut, stickers, brad and even button on it.

 And if swaps are not your cup of tea- just add some strings on the back of the coins and you would have 6 adorable hand made Christmas tree ornaments.
