I then considered using bezels. I wasn't able to find 2 bezels in my collection that were the right size to accommodate a plaid. I wasn't able to locate any in local stores that I liked so my thoughts then turned to plaid cookie tins.
Surely, there must be some plaid tins somewhere. If I had the spare time, I would have loved to have taken time to poke through some local thrift shops for plaid tins. I needed just one plaid tin to use with my metal disk punch set. In the meantime, time is marching on.
I then came up with the perfect plan. Being sort on creative time this month, I thought that there must be someone who has already done the disk cutting and is selling plaid disks. I did some searching online and discovered exactly what I was dreaming of. Perfect except for one thing, the seller was in Ireland. Being of Irish ancestry, I thought that was really cool and excited for an excuse to buy something from the old country, but I was pretty sure I wouldn't get them in time. I took a gamble on the postal services and lost. Ten days for a shipment to make it from Ireland to US is cutting things close even when it isn't holiday time.
They are just perfect and I can't wait to get them. Tomorrow will probably be the day I get them.
I can't wait to see what others have created in the meantime.
