Casino Chip punch art

I don't know why this picture is entirely crooked.  Sorry about that! 

I needed to make a casino chip card for a guy, and checked google and pinterest and could NOT find I had to put my thinking cap on and come up with it myself.  VERY easy using a Rectangle punch!  Here's how you make it -

Punch your circle in whatever color cardstock you want your chips to be.  I used Real Red.  Use a Rectangle hand punch to punch out little tick marks.  I started at 12:00, then 6:00, then 3:00, and finally 9:00 - so they're all evenly spaced out.  Then go back and do in between all of those.

Punch another circle, using the same size circle punch that you used before, in whatever color you want peeking from beneath.  I went with Whisper White.

Tape them on top of each other, and you've got your base Casino Chip!  Doll it up however you want!  I added numbers, since he was turning 45, and a little birthday hat in the other one.

Give it a try and have fun with it!
