Pennies as Geoswag
So I love the idea of really COOL swag. I get most of my swag from Goodwill but when I saw this on Pinterest I knew it had potential…
It’s paining pennies in cool designs and adding a little ring… I’d use a picture but I HATE it when people snag photos from MY projects without asking so I’ll refrain. But trust me on the link. It’s well worth it!
I like that pennies are inexpensive so you’re really just out some nail polish and TIME. I wonder what it’d look like if you attached a Travel Bug to the coin?
I think I might need to raid my piggy bank!
I’m always looking for a craft I can do that would also double as something else. What can I say, I have a hard time justifying “crafting time” if the only purpose is to look pretty!
I read on Pinterest about painting rocks like strawberries to keep birds out of the strawberry bed. (IT does actually work! Made some for my mom for Mother’s Day.)
But then I was thinking that it would be a GREAT thing to leave as swag in a geocache! Especially since MOST caches are full of… crud. Personally, I wouldn’t turn it into a signature item but a trade item that might move from cache to cache.
There’s no need to make this into a billion steps (Pinterest says to paint them white first!)
