These coasters are not only adorable but they are also very functional. I would like to thank Eileen Hull for allowing us to share her wonderful idea with you today.
Here’s a quick and easy project that would make a perfect hostess gift.
Eileen found some cork placemats at Ikea and was wondering how that material would react when rolled through the Big Shot. Success! The trick is to find the right thickness. If you feel resistance and the material is hard to roll through, abort the mission. Back it up and try something thinner. You could break the machine and being without a machine is a scary thought that has ever crossed your mind, trust me.
So, you found the right thickness of cork… trim it to a 6″ strip and select a die to work with. We used the Doily, Lace Medallion
to cut a set of four cork doilies. They measure about four inches and are the perfect size to hold glasses.
Eileen used the Sweet Things set to make the Sweet tag. Cut one tag from the red paper. For the backing paper, place two pieces of pink cardstock. The die will cut the one closest to the blade through and the one under it will just be scored, but the edges should be cut. Place the scored piece under the red tag. Tie up doilies with a piece of pink wired ribbon and you have one cute pishky (a little gift)!
My hope is to inspire you to be fearless when it comes to your creativity, to try new things and most important to have fun!
Thanks for visiting and have a very creative day.
