Papercraft

Snowman Coasters (set of 4)

Hello, my crafty friends! Here’s to hoping you have a great week coming up and the weather is beginning to feel nice where you are! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #15 – October Anything Goes! I created an adorable set of snowman coasters and cannot tell you how much fun I had creating them! It’s been a couple years since I’ve stamped any coasters so I figured it time to pull out my stash of pulpboard blanks and have some inky fun!

I stamped on Blockheads round coaster blanks with a set of Blockheads stamps, colored the images with Spectrum Noir markers and heat set them (a couple times) with my heat tool.

These really are easy to make and hold up well to cold or hot beverages. If the cold beverage sweats, the ink won’t run because it has been heat set… just let the coaster dry. If allowed to get wet, though, they won’t last nearly as long as they will if you keep ’em dry! ;)

These are so stinkin’ cute and don’t require a long list of supplies to make! Love, love, love how these turned out! So much fun and such a neat little gift idea!
