I got all this FABULOUS Heidi Grace patterned paper not too long ago from my local scrapbook store (ATS carries some of the same patterns here) and wanted to make something other than a card with it (LOL it was a purely selfish motive - I wanted to keep the paper and also display it in some way so this is what I came up with! *wink*).
I cut ten so that I could cover both sides of the coasters (it gave them a more finished appearance in my opinion).
Before adhering the paper I used my Stampin' Up! 3/16" Corner Rounder punch on all of them (that punch is PERFECT for rounding the edges when covering coasters!). I then just used Mono Multi adhesive to adhere the papers (I could have used Mod Podge but I wasn't in the mood for the mess - I tend to cover myself more than the project when I use Mod Podge ROFLOL!!).
The chipboard letters are also from Stampin' Up! - the On Board Simon Lower® set (since there is only one of each letter per set I try to order a set each time I put in a SU order so I have extras on hand).
I just traced each letter onto the patterned papers with a pencil then cut them out with scissors.
Again I used Mono Multi to adhere the paper to the chipboard, and with the letters I used files from this Basic Grey file kit to file down the edges that either stuck out too much or that I didn't cut smoothly enough with the scissors.
The hinges are from the Dollarama - I got several packs of them (there were 3 pairs of hinges in 3 different sizes (so 6 altogether) plus snaps for $1!!) some time ago - I didn't use the snaps to attach them tho.
I marked on each coaster where the holes from each hinge would be - then used my paper piercer (a heavy-duty needle would work as well) to pierce the holes.
I don't know how well you can see in these pictures but the dotted paper is flocked (so fun and fuzzy!) while the darker blue papers are embossed and glittered and shimmery and WOW.
It's really hard to SHOW just how gorgeous these papers are in real life - and looking at them online in any store just DOESN'T do them justice - but trust me these papers are GORGEOUS!
I didn't add any other embellishments to this - I wanted all the patterns and flocking and glitter to stand out so I left it all as is.
It ended up being a pretty quick and easy project - and it matches my tree (that was the reason I got the papers in the first place) - my decorations are blue, white and silver (I finally got my tree up and all the decorations on it - hopefully I'll be able to get a decent picture of it to share on here soon!).
