Good morning (I think! LOL!)
Hmmm...what do I have to share with you today???
Maybe something new? Something different?
How about something that is NOT a card?
How about something that is a total first for ME too?
How about a coaster box?
It's a coworker's birthday tomorrow and I wanted to make something for her. This is what I made.
Then I bought a couple bags of her favorite candy (Baby Ruth's) and filled the container. I made a tag and attached it to a skewer stick. Then stuck it in the container. I couldn't fit the finished product in my photo box...so excuse all the background mess in the photo.
The box is made with 4 inch cardboard coasters (like they would use a Chili's or similar restaurant. I was given a package of these by a friend. I cut my patterned paper to 4x4 and then used modge podge to adhere the paper to the cardboard. I sanded the edges and the fronts of the coasters a bit to distress it. Then I punched holes in one coaster and used it as a template for three of the others and then punched holes in them as well. I used ribbon to tie the sections together. Then I took the 5th coaster and glued it to the bottom of the other four to complete the "box". Then I decorated it a tiny bit with the stamped image (all stamps are Stampin' Up today). I think it came out really cute!
