Coaster Frames

I was making some squash books (see here for directions) the other day and looking at the coasters I was using and decided they would be great for little picture frames so here's what I came up with.

I cut a piece of 4x4 patterned paper and rounded the corners with my corner rounder. Next I cut a transparency into a 3 1/4 inch square and sewed it onto the patterned paper with my Janome Sew Mini. After attaching the paper to the front I also covered the back with matching paper and a large piece of magnet. To finish the frames I added a variety of stamped images, ribbons, and flowers.

All of the stamps used are from Inque Boutique. The "dance" is cut out with my cuttlebug and covered in stickles so it sparkles. Wallet sized photos fit perfectly in these frames.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you like the frame idea. Let me know if you try them.
