Christmas in July - Winter Coin Book!

Well, down to the last installment of Christmas in July. Today I have a Winter themed coin book to share with you. If you've never messed with a coin book before I highly suggest giving one a try. It's so much fun trying to come up with small photos, charms, embellishments, etc. to fill in all of those nifty little holes!

Any coin book will work but I like the ones with larger holes...quarter or half dollar books are my fav's.

Since this is a pretty personalized craft I'm not going to add any instructions, you can pretty much just do whatever feels good. There are no limits to the goodies you can add or techniques you can employ ~ just relax, experiment and have fun!

Here is my Winter Themed Coin Book....

Winter Coin Book 010

Neat huh? You could spend as much or as little time as you want/have on one of these books. They would make great gifts for family or friends who live near or far! Remember by varying the themes and color schemes these books would also make awesome gifts for Birthdays, Anniversaries, or virtually any occasion!

Now, as a final Christmas/Winter hurrah you have until 7-21 to post at which time I'll draw a winner for a surprise pack of all sorts of winter/Christmas embellishments :)

Good Luck Everyone!!
