For my upcoming convention games, I wanted some custom Bennies ... but of course there aren't any for the Wonderland No More setting. However, I have a number of poker chips that are devoid of any embossed emblems in the middle (just a flat circle in the middle, 1" diameter, no logo), which makes them perfect for circular labels. On Amazon.com, I got some label sheets with 1" circles (63 per sheet).



The label maker site provided a Word document with a template in the form of a table. I selected the table and made the borders visible, then exported the template as a pdf, and loaded it into Adobe Photoshop as a guide layer. Next, I made circle outlines to fit each of the squares, so I could see roughly where the stickers would be. I took the "green leather" texture from the WNM cover and stretched it across the page, then inserted little "Wonderland No More" logos in each space for one page. For the second page, I inserted several segments of art from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There, and The Hunting of the Snark, plus a couple of odd Tenniel illustrations, and a few of the WNM character portraits.

I took several assorted poker chips that I'd already spray-painted gold (to serve as gold coins once upon a time for a LARP called "SwordTag"), gave them an extra coat for good measure, and then started applying the stickers.

Voila! Bennies.

Link to labels on Amazon.com that I used (though it looks like they're on clearance)

Any poker chips need a large, flat area in the center, without embossed images, or else the stickers won't apply evenly.
