But that’s just half the fun. The rest of the fun starts after you’ve done the finding and hunting.
You can do almost anything once you get your pressed pennies. You can put them in a book (like these):
Or… You Can Make Things with Them…
Generally, if you are going to make anything with your elongated pennies you’ll have to put holes on them. They can easily become earrings, bracelets, necklaces or keyrings. But first, you must punch some holes (which is actually a lot easier than you would think when you purchase a handly metal hole punch).
