Coaster Frame

Hello everyone!! Well, the school year is under way and everything is going smoothly for the moment. It has just been a lot more work than I ever remember it being! But then again, I do have a 7 year old to contend with as well. Thankfully, my husband has really stepped up and helped me out there! Did I mention that I was also helping out the volleyball coach? The volleyball season ends at the same time as my son's soccer season. But then we are well on our way to Christmas!! YIKES!

Then there is stamping to help me gain my senses about me! Here is a little project that I put together for a swap and a shoebox swap that I am in. The one for the swap I did with some different paper and stamps but it is almost identical. I thought it turned out pretty cute! They are pretty easy to make as well. I used two 4 x 4 chipboard coasters (like the ones they use in restaurants). I covered them with our new Fall Flowers designer paper. Then I used the Bud Basics stamp set to decorate. Top it off with some Basic Gray taffeta ribbon and there you have it!! The little "hinges" are from a die cut by Zip 'e Mate. I just added some brads to make them look even more authentic! I really liked how it turned out! Enjoy!
