Time with Friends

What better way to spend the beginning of the New Year than with precious friends like you.


This was a really fun project we made in our hostess club meeting last week. Honestly, I can’t take even a little credit for this because it’s almost an exact copy (CASE) of this project by Julie Hunt. (I still like hers better.)

We used the corner rounder punch to give the 4×4 pieces of paper the same shape as the coaster and then ModPodge to adhere the the Cutie Pie designer paper to a coaster. I like to paint to top of the paper with ModPodge too to give it a glaze and a more finished look. Then, we used sandpaper around the edges to make the paper match the shape of the coaster even more. Once we finished putting on the ribbons and brads, we added a magnetic strip to the back so this little guy can sit on a refrigerator, file cabinet, etc. The stamp set is the new Time Well Spent Level 3 Hostess stamp set.

Here’s looking forward to all the fun we’re going to have together in 2008. As I write this, my tiny little blog is inching ever so closely to 50,000 hits, just 60 hits shy. I’m so amazed by that. Thank you for spending time here with me.
