Christmas fun with coasters


well, it looks like Blogger is having photo upload hiccups again, so I can only describe the project for you right now. Maybe tomorrow morning I'll be able to upload a photo. And here it is:

Anyway, today's project is a 5 panel sign made out of chipboard coasters. I covered the coasters with real red and old olive card stock stamped with one of the stamps from the snow flurries set in encore silver ink. The panels are joined using hinges made out of river rock card stock and the word window punch, which are attached to the coasters with silver brads.

The first panel is decorated with a snowflake from the on board garland greeting pack. The snowflake was inked in versamark, covered with heat and stick powder and then with silver glitter, so it's nice and shiny, plus it has a fun round fire red rhinestone in the center. The other four panels spell out Noel. I used Headlines Alphabet and stamped the letters in real red and old olive craft inks, heat embossed with clear ink. The letters are then adhered to mats of Dashing designer paper and either real red or old olive card stock.

It's a super simple design, but it's also cute and festive!
