LOL - I first read this as "great BRAND name" -- which I think it would be, better get a patent on it quickly, Deb!

Really love this idea and we have a lot of pennies that I could use... thanks for sharing Thumbs up

Thanks, all. It's a fun project - quick and easy. I'll likely use a more water resistant glue next time, but so far the Elmer's is holding up.

Welcome @LuzSlash! It really was faster than I thought it would be. At first I tried to be pretty symetrical, but after a couple rows, I realized that was a futile effort and went into glue-and-slap mode. Good project for kids.
