Hello crafty friends!
For this Throwback Thursday post, I took it back to my childhood. I was inspired by the new kid’s fad, the fidget spinners and remembered when I grew up we had fads that came and went too.
One of those fads were POGS milkcaps. They are cardboard chips with different pictures and designs on them that kids would collect and play with. You can read more about them here.
Below is my interpretation of “POGS” card using various stamps and a 1 1/4″ hole punch.
I used various stamps on scrap paper and then punched out the stamped images. I then layered the circles into 4 paper layers with a clear thread between the 2nd and 3rd circle layer. The thread connected 3 “POGS”. Then by cutting out a frame in 2 sheets of cardstock, I adhered the thread to the top and bottom of the frame. The inside of the card features a flap to hide a sentiment and a textured layer that shows through the front of the card.
