Christmas Decor!

I was not in attendance at the Stampin' Up convention this past summer, but read several threads and saw a few pictures on SCS about a project that was done there using CD's covered in designer paper. This is my variation of the project, using round chipboard coasters! I finished this today, and immediately wanted to make more for Christmas gifts! But then realized, you can't do this without having to buy a whole set of alphabet letters to spell out "noel" over and over! Bummer! Someone needs to come up with chipboard letters sold in individual letter packages! If you know of a company that does, let me know! :)

I used paper from the Holly Jolly Collection from Flair, and my chipboard letters are from Stampin' Up. The round coasters were given to me by my friend Trina, but I don't know where she got them. (Sorry!) I used modge-podge to adhere the DP to the coasters and letters, attached my different accessories and embellishments, then used red-line tape to adhere the letters to the coasters. I punched holes with my Crop-a-dile, and tied them all together using Stampin' Up red organdy ribbon, with some thinner green organdy ribbon. Other accessories used are: Letter n - snowflakes from Cuttlebug Snowflake #2 die cut; letter o - white snowflake brad from Making Memories, and red button from SU!; letter e - red ribbon from unknown source and Ice circle brad from SU!; letter l - red button from SU!, red star punched from EK Success punch, red velvet rick-rack from May Arts.

And voila'... the finished project!

Thanks for looking, and stamp happy!
