Snowflake Coaster Cards~


I had this mini 4x4 Sheer Coaster Album by Maya Road for like a year now and wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it. Until today! I thought wow! they would make cute little cards! So that's what I did! I punched holes in the top center of each page with my Croc-o-dile and used some sheer ribbon to tie them together. The large snowflakes are wood, made by Provo Craft, which I painted in 2 different shades of blues and 1 in white. Then I coated them all with some Glitter Glaze and added ribbons, hemp cord and buttons. I inked the edges of the cards with white ink and added some pp on the insides for sentiments. I used either stamps(Inque Boutique), crystal snowflakes(Hero Arts) or white branches(Martha Stewart punch) to them.

This is the one with the Martha Stewart punched branches.

This one has the Hero Arts Crystal Snowflakes.

And this one has the Inque Boutique Stamps on it.

These are so easy and fun to make. I hope you enjoy them!!

Have a great day!

Hugs, Melissa
