My First Coaster Box!

Here it is! My first coaster box. It was fun. It's not perfect...but nothing I ever do is ;0) I was actually so excited about making it I forgot a few things...like to cut my paper around the corners and sand it like I wanted, but it is still okay. And I also had some trouble getting the four corners to match up with the bottom coaster. But it's together and has not fallen apart yet! My first idea was to use my new chocolate paper from the new Spring Mini. I love it. But then I realized...after I attached all the paper to my coasters...that I do not have any nice chocolate or cream ribbon!! What to do? All I had was this, very thin ribbon. Pretty pathetic for tying a bow. So this is the only option that came to mind. I am actually quite happy with it. I even got to use my new Scalloped Circles that I made. Yup, made! Thanks to Cindy, I found this great tutorial for making them. And it really does work and with the oval template as well!! Thank you so much Julie!!

Hubby does'nt like this one all that much...says the colors are boring...but Chocolate Chip is one of my favorite SU colors. This one is all mine!!

Thanks for stoppin' by :0)
