Project-Coaster Mini How to's

This month the July Kit #3 features a fun Maya Road chipboard coaster album. I thought it would be fun to show you how I like to create mine. I choose to use a coffee cup album that I already had and some Basic Grey paper (mainly because I wiped out my July kit creating layouts!) If you are looking for a quick fun project or need a little gift for someone then this is the perfect idea and can be completed in an hour or two.

Supply list: All you need is a few simple supplies)
  • Coordinating Patterned Paper
  • Die cuts and tags
  • Floss and/or ribbon
  • Chipboard shapes
  • Sheet of rubons
  • Matching Letter stickers for title
  • Adhesive, Exacto Knife, and ink
  1. Adhere all your shapes to the sheets of patterned paper. Cut out with your exacto knife and then repeat with the other sides. Ink all edges.
  2. Adhere small rectangles of cardstock to each piece besides the front cover. The blocks will serve as photo mats later on when you want to add photos. I used 2x3" mats.
  3. Next create your cover. I added a small oval of brown paper to give my cup book the look of a coffee cup. Then I added matching letter stickers in 2 different colors for a title. I used diamond glaze on the brown letters and pink stickles on the pink letters to give them a fun look.
  4. Next finish off the rest of the pages by adding tags, die cuts and chipboard shapes throughout. Don't go too crazy simple is better. Next add a few rub ons here and there and make sure to tie your ribbon or floss onto your tags. And walla your done!
We would love to see your creations in the TTT Gallery and don't forget to check out the current contest going on now!
