Well it's a little late, but here's the craft of the week, penny charms! I'm sure you've seen these penny machines along your travels, mainly in tourist attraction areas. You put your penny into the machine and it flattens it with an embossed image of the place you visited. But what do you do with all those flattened pennies? That's when I thought of penny charms. This is so easy to do it barely qualifies as a craft. Directions below.
Here's what you start with, a tourist flattened penny. Using a small nail(I used the ones you hang small pictures with), hammer a hole into the penny close to the top. Add a jump ring with needle nose pliers. I added a clasp as well so I could clip it to a chain bracelet but that's optional. Done!
