WOYWW: Make Your Own Coasters

Top of Altered Coaster Box

It’s always amazing what you make – forget about – then find again when you finally get around to cleaning up your workspace.

Altered Coaster Box - Interior

This week, I came across a project I completed awhile back. It’s an altered box filled with a set of coordinating holiday-themed coasters.

Be Merry Coaster

As you might imagine, the cats – not me – immediately took over the space. Tsunami sprawled out and took a nap (he’s headlining at Wordless Wednesday) and Legend got naughty with a roll of paper towels!
