Freebie Friday: Gold Coins

The little buddy loves this pirate book we got from the library. The line that is used over and over and over is "where there's a gold I be goin'." But alas, when we play pirates we were fresh out of gold. When I was at Joann's this week I saw those plastic gold coins and almost picked some up. But, then I figured I could make some for free, and since I'm trying to cut out all those cheap little things that we end up throwing away eventually I figured that this was the way to go.

Get the gold "coins" here. (I made six by gluing them back to back and then laminated them).

I also thought they could be really cute as a cupcake topper with a chocolate cupcake made into a "pot" with the little gold coin sticking up. Kinda fun. Anyway, enjoy!

These are a great alternative to the plastic coins (or chocolate ones)!
Thank you for sharing!

Thanks Lauralee. My little boys loved these! They're sneaking around our house like leprechauns (thanks to a fun primary activity) doing little acts of service and are leaving one of your cute gold coins behind. These were just perfect! Thanks again!
