Tile stamped-coasters

Sorry for the blurry pics.

I scrap lifted this idea from Brandy's Cards on You Tube.

I made these as gifts for some of my family and friends.  They were quick, easy and very inexpensive.

The tiles were purchased from Home Depot.  9 tiles were around $4.00.  The Stazon ink I already had in my stash and these stamps pictured were purchased from Everything Scrapbook and Stamps in Lake Worth, FL.  The stamps are from a company called "Our Daily Bread."

I also used other stamps in my stash for Christmas, friendship and nature coasters.

You must use Stazon ink.  Some people bake their tiles, I don't and haven't had any problems.  Be sure to use the felt adhesive circles underneath so they don't scratch your furniture.




Paper bag cards with tags

These are a some of the paper bag Christmas cards I made this year.  I used the Recollection bags from Michaels.  You could use whatever size bag you want or use regular paper lunch bags and cut them down to the size you want.  I just folded up the bottom and glued the sides to make the pocket.  I also glued the gusset and inside flap so the card would lay flat.

Some are more embellished than others, so take that into consideration if you are mailing these cards.  They are great to put a gift card or pictures in.







I also covered the back of the bag, but you don't have too.  I just liked the look of it.  This is a great way to use up your scrap paper and ribbons.

Merry Christmas to all!!
