a quick handmade gift

Monday, December 14, 2015

Okay, this is one of my favorite things I have ever received.
My sister made these last year.  One of our little get togethers where she makes us cry, cause her "party favor" is the most thoughtful, loving, beautiful.  Always.
A set of personalized coasters.  With some of my favorite moments.  
And these days, it's so much easier to grab your friends photos with Facebook and Instagram.  Just take screen shots, resize to the coaster size (4x4) and print!  It couldn't be easier!
I found a tutorial here.
Honestly, grab your materials this week and have a crafty couple of hours over the weekend. Still in plenty of time for Christmas.  I think moms could give them to dads, parents, lovers, friends, kids.   And vice versa on all!
I think its just the perfect little gift.

  2. THanks Leslie for the great idea.

  3. I like! My coasters are so grungy that I want to hide them when company comes. Not a good sign. I did do photo mugs this year, a first for me!

  4. What a great gift to remember those wonderful memories. Pinned the link for future ideas.

  5. It will be very cool if you pay attention to my post, because there will be information about home decor signs, which will be useful to absolutely everyone, because we all want to change something from time to time in our interior.
