Coaster Swap

Over on Cardmaking Paradise we had a coaster swap, for this many participants used beer mats sadly I couldn’t get to the local pub so had to resort to making a coaster from grey board!

I struggled with this swap and it took a long time before I started work but there were a fantastic array of works of art. Some ladies created hangings with two or more coasters connected together with jump rings while someone else made a small ‘book’. Just have to admire that talent and creativity!
