To begin, I cut out four images from the Live in Color Tag scrapbook paper.
I stamped onto white cardstock with Mystery, color POP mini ink and the stamp set, Unicorns and Rainbows. I also used some of the mushrooms, flowers, and bugs from the What's Up Gnomey? set.
I used markers to color in the Unicorn and Rainbow images and cut them out.
I also colored in mushrooms, flowers, a butterfly, and a ladybug from the What's Up Gnomey? stamp set and cut them out.
Using Decoart's Decou-Page and an old paintbrush, I glued the tags onto the four coasters. Then I glued the cut out images with Decou-page on top of the tags.
Next, I took the mini POP inks and swiped the edges of the coasters. For these four, I used Kiss, Fresh, and Ice.
With a charcoal pencil, I outlined the images and the lines on the tags. I smudged lightly with a Q-tip. Then I coated all the coasters with the Decou-page. After drying, I coated them all with Ultra-Matte varnish.
Choosing from my sequin and jewel stash, I glued an assorted variety onto the coasters with white glue.
I then used a paper punch to punch two holes into the upper corners. Then, I used a 12'-14" piece of ribbon to tie in the holes, making a loop in the center of the ribbon.
These can be used as tags and double as ornaments. I think they'd be a cute addition for a birthday or baby present. I hope you enjoyed my project and that it will give you some ideas to recycle those drink coasters.
