Sometimes it works...

Find out who you are and do it on purpose -Dolly Parton

Sometimes you see something and you think "I could use that on a card!" and sometimes your friend, who is standing next to you, looks at you like you are crazy. But, I am telling you now, tell you friend you know what you are doing and Go For It!

I speak from experience of course, for me it some felt coasters I saw at Michael's for a dollar...since anything that is a dollar is really almost free I got them! I decided to try my new sewing machine on it...and it Worked!!!

I simply sewed the coaster to a piece of Chocolate Chip CS and then added small Prima flowers, sticky pearls and a big satin bow, I mounted that on a So Saffron base...

Supplies:
Stamps: none
Paper: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron CS
Ink: none
Misc: Sticky Pearls, sewing machine, Prima Flowers, Satin Ribbon
