Holiday Coasters Hostess Gift
First, I started by stamping my images onto a 4x4 ceramic tile. Next, I put Crafty Power Tape around the perimeter of the tile.
Once the Crafty Power Tape was down, I removed the backing, and then added FloraSoft in Vintage Christmas.
Once the FloraSoft was adhered, I used a small paintbrush to gently brush off any stray pieces. The result is a perfect perimeter of color, texture and interest. I repeated the above steps until I had a set of 4 coasters.
To assemble the hostess gift – I still needed to make a tag to tie up with the coasters. I started by stamping a holiday image and then coloring it in with Copics and White gel pen.
Using the MyStik™ Permanent Strips – all “decked” out in my Christmas Paper - I attached the paper strip to the diecut tag. I also used it to adhere the circle to the scallop. The scallop was then adhered to the tag using Foam Squares.
The last step is to tie the four coasters together, and then tie your tag into the bow. I used twine and added some festive berries to complete the gift.
Happy Holidays everyone!
