Coaster Chipboard Book

I just completed my first chipboard coaster book. This was really fun to put together and of course it stars my four legged child. Here's a tip to getting the paper on your coasters to stay down and look good: use a glue stick and your brayer! Cut your paper a little bit bigger than your coaster, adhere the glue from the stick to the coaster, put your paper down and then use your brayer to flatten everything out. Use your scissors or craft knife to trim off the excess paper, and your done! Another thing to do to make things interesting is mix up the coaster sizes and shapes. Add some ribbon and in the end, whatever you do, have fun! Patterned paper is by The Angel Company.
