Quick Gift….Very Quick!

Did you know that you can cut the cork sheets sold by Stampin' Up! with the Big Shot? Yep, cork and 49 other types of materials. I wanted a quick gift for our daughter-in-law's birthday that I could enclose in a card and made these cork coasters. I have shared the card before as a Stamping 411 sketch response but wanted to include the card along with the coasters as a set. I used the same Just Believe image on the card and the coasters. I cut out the coasters with the larger scalloped square of the Scalloped Squares Duo Bigz die. After stamping on the cork, I used my markers to darken the image. I am definitely going to make more of these coasters. Actually, I am going to teach a class on November 21st at 2 p.m. on quick gifts and gift wrapping. Watch for further information. You can order the materials for these coasters by visiting my online store. Thanks for visiting today. I love receiving happy mail so leave a coment if you like this gift idea.

    These are really nice!! One quick question, though, since you used Classic Ink and markers, will the ink bleed if you were to put a cold drink on the coasters and the glass sweats? Should these be used only for warm beverages, like coffee, tea, hot chocolate?

    Thanks so much for sharing this idea. I work in an office with 40 people who all expect a little handmade something on their birthday.LOL I believe this would be the perfect idea for both the male and female coworkers. I really appreciate you sharing.

    I am glad you like this project, Kathy. It is adaptable for any occasion. Be sure to lightly spray the surface with a matte fixative unless you have used all permanent inks like Stazon or craft ink which you have set with a heat tool.
