Coaster picture frame

Happy Saturday! Here's a quick post on my latest picture frame done with coasters. All supplies are from The Angel Company.

The designer paper is from the Rustic Chic line. I cut four 4 x 4 pieces of paper and adhered them onto the coasters with a glue stick. I always use a brayer to roll over the paper to make sure it's good and stuck. Palette burnt umber was used around the edges of the coasters, after the paper was sanded off.

I used my crop-o-dile to punch holes for the ribbon ties. The tags were colored very lightly using Versamagic chalk ink in Sea Breeze, then the edges are distressed in burnt umber. On the oval tag I used two eyelets in antique copper to add some interest.

The flowers and buttons are from Making Memories (also sold by TAC) Noteworthy, in Hilary and Audrey colors. My DH really liked this frame, except for the flowers.....LOL! Must be a girl thing!

Hope your having a great weekend!
