Decoupage Coasters

Hi friends,

Today I am back with another simple yet beautiful and useful project using Expressions craft FLORAL Decoupage paper and newly released IMMIX chalk paints.

Today's project is Tea coasters....

Have a look....

Now lets make these coasters step by step..

1. Took square mdf coasters for the base.
2. Coloured both sides using Coral peony chalk paints from Expressionscraft.You can smooth the base using a sand paper if needed.
3. Now let the paint dry properly.
4. As the paints have a superb consistency it spreads out evenly and gives a large coverage too, so I needed very less paint to cover all the four coasters.
5. I have used floral decoupage paper which is recently released.
6. Took the paper and die cut it (little smaller than the coaster size) with spellbinder's lace squares dies to give the lacy scalloped look.
7. Used decoupage glue to adhere the paper on the coasters.
8. When dry applied distress inks around the edges to give it a finished look.

Now your coasters are done...just apply a layer of varnish to make it waterproof.

Have some more pics ....

Its too simple and easy to make. Go ahead make one using Expressions craft products and you still have time to link your project in ongoing challenge.....HERE

So, if my post inspires you,  just go ahead and make one for your father.... I am sure he will love it any time.

I am Sabiha here with a lovely shadow box frame made in just minutes with few beautiful chipboard embellishments, coloured card stock and decoupage paper from Expressions craft.

Fathers Day Shadow box Frame

Hope u all like my shadow box frame...

Now one step at a time, learn to make this.....

* Take a 12" by 12" card stock of your choice and score it and cut it as shown in the figure.

*Fold all the scored lines and stick the folded sides using glue or tacky tape.
*The shadow box is ready. Now take Expressions craft floral decoupage paper cut it and stick it in the center cavity of the box.
*Take "Happy Fathers Day" sentiment chipboard embellishment to adhere in the middle of the fame and enhance its beauty with some frame embellishment, here I have used resin frame.
*Now finally take Floral Border Frame embellishment from Expression's craft and make the beautiful border of your frame.
*I have used few pearls to make center of flowers. They add to the beauty of the border.
