Packing tape transfers wooden coin magnets. Laserjet copier images cut out and laid face down onto the sticky side of packing tape. Rub with popsicle stick so image is firmly on packing tape. Wet the back with water. Let soak in for a minute. Carefully rub the paper backing off until you are left with only the image.

Signature – stamped black ink; GC logo – acetone transfer

Both sides were stamped using personally crafted handcarved stamps

Zentangle Wooden Coin Signature Item by Lone R

My first attempts at the art of Zentangle. Drew the patterns on to carving material. Carved the zentangles using a testor knife. Inked the stamps and pressed on to wooden discs. Let dry then sprayed on a sealer.

I got a wood burning set as a gift. These are some of my first attempts.

    What an amazing find. We want to know if we can keep it or do we have to sadly part with it? We found the R wooden nickle. This is our 2 day of geocaching so we are still learning as we go.

    Took beautiful wooden coin from LoneR and left bambams from the hockey game.
    Also took souvenir card from this cache and replaced it with the Zombie Hunter souvenir card (also from J.A.R.S.!) that we picked up in another cache across town!

    Your acetone transfers look great. I couldn’t get mine to come out so dark and crisp.
