Coaster Tags

I bought a copy of Paper Creations yesterday and I have been looking at it ALL day!

Page 72 has a tutorial on making large tags, so I thought why not use my coasters (since I have 97 left out of the 100 I bought!!)

I really didn't vary much from the way it was done in the magazine.

I like to try to follow pretty much the same idea until I get the feel of what I am doing and to make sure that I like what is happening!

I started with a 4" coaster that I got from Scrappin' Great Deals and cut my double sided SEI dill blossom paper the same size and glued it on. Then I trimmed the corners and sanded the edges till smooth.

I turned over the patterned paper and used that side for the strip down the middle after adhering it to some coral bazzill cardstock. I painted the edges and the back of the coaster coral to match the trim.

Then I just added some rub-ons from My Mind's Eye and SandyLion, flowers from the Cuttlebug dies and the tab from Stamping Up tab punch.

I added a few buttons along the side of the tab just like the magazine article and traced around it with faux stitching.

I tied it with some satin ribbon to a recycled bag filled with a few goodies for our neighbours who just moved into a new home!!
