Belli Challenge #30

Chris is having another Belli Challenge on her blog using coasters this week. I love working with these coasters and so do my kids. So if you want some thing your kids can get into with you on your craft this is the one. So many things you can do with coasters. As you can see mine is a note holder for this project today. I stamped some dog images, colored them in with gamsol and colored pencils and cut them out and mounted using pop dots. I added a dog to both sides of the box but left the back plain.
Supplies Needed:
Designer Paper cut 4 pieces @ 2x4
3 Coasters 4x4 cut 2 of them in half so you have 2 @ 2x4
Adhesive
Crop-a-dile
Ribbon
Crystal Effects
White Card Stock
Bow Wow Stamp set, Stamp images on White card stock in Choc. Chip Ink.
Gamsol
Colored Pencils, Color images in with gamsol and colored pencils and set aside.
Pot Dots
exacto knife
cutting mat
Directions:

Add designer paper to coasters and round off corners.
With Crop-a-dile punch 2 holes on each short side of your coasters. Do this on all 4 coaster pieces.
Measure in 1 1/2" from both sides on the top of one of the pieces. And down about and inch or so. Use exacto knife and cut out. This gives you the place so you can get at your notes easier.
Cut strips of ribbon and tie coasters together to form a box shape. With the 4x4 coaster place in bottom of box shape and use crystal effects to glue it in. Let dry for about 1/2 hour.
Put pop dots on back of dogs and attach as desired on note box. That's it pretty simple huh!
Hope you enjoyed today's project.
