Hello friends, today I’m sharing a Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial. If you love Artist Trading Cards then you will also love artist trading coins. These coins measure 2.50 inch in size and are circles. These coins make great embellishments, trade items, and gifts. Could also make these into magnets. There really isn’t a limit.

Process for the Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial. Begin by adding ink to the edges of the 2.5 inch round cardstock pieces. Then flip over one and apply a bead of the Best Glue Ever around the edge. Set aside to dry for about 15 to 20 minutes until the glue is clear.
Apply ink to the edges of the digital image that was cut at 2.25 inches. Then apply the Best Glue Ever to the back of the image and attach to the second of the two and a half inch circle. Tip: Apply a small drop of the Best Cleaner ever to the pin for the lid of the No Clog Writing Cap, this will give added protection against the tip clogging.
Put a few drops of glitter paint over the flower images and spread with a paint brush. This gives a pretty touch of glitter that isn’t overpowering. Clean the brush with the Best Cleaner Ever and rinse with water.
Once the Best Glue Ever has become clear on the 2.50 inch circle apply lace. Make sure to pleat the lace, even if it is gathered. This will help the lace curve around the circle and give it a full look.
Spray the lace disk with Glimmer Mist of choice and allow to dry. Can use a heat tool to dry, but make sure not to get the tool to close to the lace.
Apply the Best Glue ever to the back of the digital image disk and sandwich the lace between the two disks. Add zig-zag stitches to hold all the layers and to add more interest.
Use a paper punched bird as embellishment and attach with the Best Glue Ever.
Add a drop of the Best Glue Ever using the No Clog Writing Cap to the eye area of the punched shape.
With the help of Embellie Gellie placing a flat back rhinestone for the eye is an easy task.
Love how these turned out!
