Newsprint Coaster

I think I have finally discovered that the Big Shot Multi Purpose Adhesive Sheets will forever be on my 'List of Essentials'.

Today I made a coaster using the Scallop Circle Die, Newsprint DSP, Window Sheets (acetate), cork sheets (from Spotlight) and the BSMP Adhesive Sheets (In fact, a lot of sheets were used in the making of this project).

This idea comes from page 6 of the latest Impressions Magazine for SU Demonstrators (June Edition). I really love browsing through the magazine when it arrives each month to get lots of inspiration for workshops.

I decided to use the Newsprint DSP as a lot of kitchens have the whole black and ivory decor thing happening (mine included).

Here's the sandwich that you need to make your coaster -
  • acetate (window sheet)
  • adhesive sheet
  • DSP
  • adhesive sheet
  • cork sheet
To complete the project I 'wrapped' the coaster with a Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon Bow and a Mini Vintage Tag stamped with a sentiment from Tiny Tags.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how it turned out.

Has anyone else made these? They're a lot of fun and such a great gift idea.

Happy crafting,

your coaster is fabulous!!! i totally love it! my question is this, before you layer all the necessary components together, do you cut them all down to a specific size? i would guess that you have to in order to fit it through the big shot? thanks for the information!!
