I went to Dollar Tree and Found a cool token idea.


Have you made cool tokens out of re-purposed stuff?
What do you think I should add to my new prototype tokens?

The product is not on the DT website... I found one pic online.
I sliced a rubbery gummy pencil grip into rings.

I've used pennies with a sticker on top. Worked pretty well, actually.

Bamboo tiles looked really cool.

They also have beads and those glass aquarium beads. I used to buy those from craft stores. and was surprised to find them at the dollar store.

I also found tin boxes containing puzzles... larger than an altoids tin, so it was more functional.

edit. I grabbed a cheap checkers set, mostly to see if I can reuse the board (no) and the mini checkers (yes)

lOVE IT! I looked at that checkers set. I'm gonna keep my eye out. There was also Magnet Money. Pennies, Quarters Nickels, Dimes, and mini dollars. It wasn't punched perfect but I used them.
@Storm, I wonder if we can cook the bead and squish them into tokens. or together,

Does anyone do this? Perl bead melting.

It's too Flat, and they have tiny hole if melted real good.

Thinking...

I've done that. You can make 3-D stuff by being creative with layers.

It's just a bit too much work if I wanted a lot of bits.

It's a bit easier to make clay beads.

edit: look up clay bead millefiore
