This month's Project Class is something a little bit different. We are making a set of 4 coasters and a Holder for them to go in.
This project came to life when I was searching for a nice set of coasters to buy my Mum for Mother's Day. I couldn't find any that I thought she would like, so of course I did what all good crafters do - I made my own!

I found a very ugly set of coasters in a homewares shop, on sale for only $5.95 (and they had heaps of them, because of their ugliness). I like a challenge, so I bought them, thinking that I could give them an Extreme Makeover. Here's what they look like, after they have had their Stampin' Up! treatment: I covered them with Blueberry Crisp DSP and also used the Razzle Dazzle stamp set. In my class next week everyone will be able to choose their favourite DSP to cover their coasters, and they will also learn how to make them heat and water-proof!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend. We finally seem to have seen the end of the rain here in Sydney for a little while, so I'm planning to enjoy the great outdoors!


  1. They look fab. I'm hoping we get cork sheets in the new IB&C so we can have a go at the Big Shot ones.

    They look really good. So perhaps you should open a rival store to sell nice coasters (LOL)!

  3. "..and they had heaps of them, because of their ugliness". hahahahahahaha.
    I'm searching the house for some ugly coasters. I know we have some.
