Here to wrap up Gifts for Friends week is Heather Leopard with a bunch of cute altered coasters:
Supplies: Little Trinket Paper (35983) - Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, Lucky Coin (35978) - Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, Blue Skies (35979) - Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, Raindrops (35971) - Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, Starlight (35981) - Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, Printed Chipboard Shapes (85655) - Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, Accent & Phrase Stickers (85657) - Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, Die Cut Cards (85649) - Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm
To create the coasters, I used wood glue to adhere popsicle sticks to a long piece of thin wood. Once the glue dried, my husband cut then into squares. I then applied Mod Podge to the top of the coasters, applied patterned paper and flat embellishments, and set them aside to dry. Once dried, I used a thin sander/file to distress the paper in all the grooves because I wanted to see the lines. I also applied complimentary strips of paper to the sides of the coasters and applied top and side layers of Mod Podge to protect the paper. These coasters can be used for drinks, a candle, artwork, or whatever the recipient desires.
Join us next week for the continuation of daily inspiration!
