Hey all...happy November! Today I would like to show you how to make some cute Fall coasters...perfect for gifts or just for you to have around.
In the November Kit I recieved some 12 x12 acrylic sheets. What is so wonderful about these sheets is that you can use them to make custom acrylic projects. So, I chose to make the coasters...here's how!
Gather your supplies. I have here some patterned paper from the November Kit...Echo Park's Reflections Collection, 1 12x12 acrylic sheet, alcohol inks, a dabber, Glossy Accents and a ruler. I also used some Stazon Ink and 2 stamps not shown in this picture.
First off, I peeled of the plastic coating on my 12x12 acrylic sheet. I then measured and cut out 4 4x4 pieces of acrylic.
Next, using my alcohol inks and dabber tool, I added some of the inks to my felt pad on my dabber.
I just dabbed the dabber all around the 4x4 piece of acrylic and this is what it ended up looking like. Each one of my coasters ended up looking different.
I then cut out 4 pieces of patterned paper measuring 4x4 inches, the same as the acrylic pieces.
I then applied Glossy Accents to the same side I put the alcohol inks on and smeared it around with my finger.
I quickly adhered my patterned paper piece. Do this fast because the Glossy Accents dry fast.
In my final step I stamped on the front of the coaster using my Stazon Ink. This added a little more dimension to my coasters.
I wrapped some raffia and added a cute tag from the paper and stickers from the Fall Reflections patterned paper.
Fun idea huh and what a cute little gift to give around the Thanksgiving Holiday! Thanks for stopping by and make sure you pick up your November Kit at the Clear Scraps Store!
