Valentine Coaster Gift Box

This one is pretty easy to put together.  You need 5 coasters.  Run red and black cardstock through the Cuttlebug.   Adhere coasters to the back of the panels and then trim around edges.  Create a hole punch guide to use so that all of your holes are equal on each coaster and then punch holes.  Connect at each corner by lacing ribbon,  using a criss cross pattern on the front.  This creates 2 horizontal lines lines on the inside.  This is important becuase you will set the 5th coaster inside the box, resting on the bottom line of ribbon in each corner.  See corner below.  This gives the bottom some support. 

 Use Aleene's Tacky glue to adhere to the ribbon corners and then along the bottom around the edges, adhering it to the sides.

Now just use your stamps to embellish the front!

This one is pretty easy to create.  I used dies to create my own little felt birds, and the polka dot heart.  I used a heart punch for bird wings.  The background is a TAC stamp.  I hand typed the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by!
