Snowflake Coaster Ornaments

I ordered some round coasters awhile back, not sure what I would use them for. I saw them the other day and decided to make Christmas ornaments. I had also bought a container from my friend Jody at her rummage sale with wood pieces in it this summer. In one drawer I saw snowflakes and remembered what we had done with them to a card last Christmas at SU demonstrators Yvonne and JaNells workshop. We inked them up and put glitter on them and attached them to this card. So pretty! So I dug out my Holiday Treasures paper, traced the coasters, cut and glued the paper to the coasters, and sanded the edges. Then I inked up the snowflakes and put glitter on them. I was able to use my cropadile in the wooden snowflakes to put the crystal brads in. I have several coasters leftover so I need to come up with some more ideas to use them! Any ideas?

  • Recipe:

  • Paper: Holiday treasures, choc. chip.,riding hood red, old olive

  • Ink: riding hood red, old olive, pacific point

  • Other: round coasters, wooden snowflakes, tab punch, jumbo eyelets, riding hood red ribbon, crystal brads
