Su Casa: Cool Coasters

Su Casa member Tweet Hotpants was inspired by the DIY: Map Coasters project I posted a few days ago, and headed down to her local Michael's to find materials to craft her own version of the project.

Here are the coasters she started out with:

To see how she transformed these cardinal coasters, and to see even more coasters she made,

Tweet Hotpants writes,

I saw the DIY about the map coasters and I thought it was a great idea! I just got a set of coasters from my grandma that weren't really my style, so I went to Michael's to find some scrapbooking paper that looked like an old map . . . but I couldn't find any! So I got some that looked like old postcards instead. Then I bought some other paper that I just thought was pretty and decided that if the first batch of coasters came out well, I'd do a second batch.


What an improvement! I also love the atmospheric staging Tweet Hotpants did with this photo. Be sure to check out the gallery for the rest of her coaster crafting.
