My Stampin' Up! Classes

Round coasters from Bermuda...

Bermuda had some great pubs with wonderful tasting burgers and fish & chips. And two of the pubs we went to had thick, round coasters. Louise and I figured they'd make cute little albums... and I think we were right!

There's only 4 coasters here, each covered with Summer Picnic designer paper and sanded on the edges with a sanding block. I used glue stick to adhere the paper to the coasters.

I punched two holes in one coaster with a Crop-a-dile, then used that one coaster as a template to punch the others. The metal rings came from Office Max. Then I decorated them with Old Olive poly-twill ribbon, and red and bashful blue striped grosgrain ribbons.

Each side has either a cut or punched out image pumped up with Stampin' Dimensionals, or hardware and ribbon, or a die-cut bloom. Now all I have to do is adhere photos of my kids on each coaster and it's a purse-sized mini album!

Have a wonderful Sunday!
