"Tile Coasters"


Well, it has been a stressful week preparing for Friday's class. I really wanted to make the tile coasters but I couldn't find them. I searched and searched for them at Lowes and Home Depot but both places were out, or no longer carried non glazed tiles. I was so bummed. So I came up with two candy projects instead. Then I was looking at all the projects and most of them were candy. I didn't know what to do. Then my friend Carrie called and told me that JoAnn's had some coasters but they were circles. At that point I didn't care, I just wanted to make them, so I decided to check it out and see what they were and I bought all they had. They were on clearance in the Christmas section 50% off. They only had eight 4 packs so they will only be making two of them.

Here is what they look like. It is a kit that came with glitter, die cut snowman and snowflakes, and a circle felt bottom. I wish they would have had more.
Stamps: French Script, Grapes (retired)
Ink: Olive, Black, and Purple Stazon
Accessories: Tile Coaster, Organdy Ribbon

Absolutely beautiful!! What is the name of the retired grape set you used? Thank you for sharing such a great project -- round ones are great as the grapes are circular, too!! Sometimes a different shape is all it takes to make the difference!! I enjoy your blog everyday and appreciate your wonderful creativity! Thank you for the practical gifts that you make for young and old alike!
Merry Christmas! ~Amy S.~

Very nice project!! I'm sure they'll love it. Can I ask you how much you charge for your classes? I would love to offer some adult education/card making/stamping classes, but have no idea of where to even start with them. Your classes are all so nice!
