Coasters!

Ok, so here’s my latest project.  I should have enough done to make coordinated sets for everyone by the time next Christmas rolls around!  A couple of things I’m trying to figure out, however:

  • A way to make them less tacky when faced with a hot beverage container
  • avoiding “coaster stick” from condensation from a cold beverage.

There’s a Christmas themed one in this batch, as you can probably tell.  The basics are can lids, patterned paper, and fifty billion layers of Mod Podge.  All the paper you see here is from Paper Source.  The smaller coasters are perfect for wine glasses and the larger ones can be used for tumblers and other kinds of glasses.

Slowly Getting Back to it…

I needed two simple cards…one a condolence card, and the other just a note card (for a very belated Christmas gift..oops).

The crane is folded out of lavender fibrous paper and the card backing is mulberry paper glued on top of some stationery (Papyrus).

This was made using papers from one of Paper Source’s scrap packages. ALL I did was add a strip of purple and some gold flat curling ribbon to make it elegant.
