Stamped Penny Charm

Feb 20, 2014

We are all mad

The oth­er day, I was search­ing on Pin­ter­est for a charm bracelet I saw months ago made from squished sou­venir pen­nies. I have so many of these from places we took the girls when they were young as well as from my trav­els. I love charm bracelets so I am absolute­ly going to make this bracelet. I’m one of these crazy peo­ple who can­not pass up one of these pen­ny machines. While search­ing for the charm bracelet I stum­bled upon some charms made from ham­mered pen­nies with met­al stamped words. After see­ing these it got me to think­ing about the cute “Cof­fee Break Ring” I saw on the Resin Crafts Envi­ro­Tex blog cre­ate by Car­mi Cim­i­ca­ta and in no time I made this charm for my daugh­ter, Ans­ley. She loves the sto­ry “Alice in Won­der­land” so I decid­ed to met­al stamp “We are all mad” on hers. I put togeth­er a short tuto­r­i­al if you want to make a charm for your­self.

Sup­plies & Tools Need­ed: Impres­sArt Bench Block ~ Brass Ham­mer ~ 2 Hole Screw Down Punch ~ Met­al Let­ter Stamps ~ Stamp Straight Tape ~ Half Round Pli­ers, Pen­ny, Jump Rings, E6000, Minia­ture Teacup & Saucer, Black Paint

Instruc­tions:

  • Place pen­ny on bench block and ham­mer until flat­tened.
  • Met­al Stamp the word­ing onto your disk. Impres­sArt has some great stamp­ing tuto­ri­als that can be found HERE.
  • Apply black paint on top of the met­al stamped let­ters mak­ing sure to get the paint down into each stamped let­ter, wipe off excess with a dry paper tow­el.
  • Using a 2 Hole Screw Down Punch, punch a hole into the top of your disk.
  • Attach a jump ring onto the disk.
  • Using E6000 attach a minia­ture teacup onto a minia­ture saucer, let dry. Attach a jump ring through the han­dle of the teacup.

If you don’t want to flat­ten a pen­ny you can use any of the Blank Met­al Disks by Impres­sArt to cre­ate your met­al stamped charm.

You can place these two charms sep­a­rate­ly onto a neck­lace or attach both charms togeth­er by attach­ing the jump ring on the disk and teacup togeth­er onto a jump ring. Either way you decide to wear yours it’s gonna be adorable.
