Can Never Have Enough of These During the Holidays!


The holidays are quickly approaching and so are the family gatherings and parties. I don't know about you but I never seem to have enough coasters for all the festive drinks. Then while floor shopping, yes it is relative to my subject on coasters, an idea came to me as I held a sample of a cork flooring.

This was a little work for a great outcome, at least I thinks so and the best thing is you get to use your imagination to create your own coasters with a Fall theme, beach theme or what ever comes to your mind.

I think they should hold up to the sweating container just as well as some expensive glass coasters I have.

    Like it. Have been looking for ideas to work from for Valentines. Heart cut outs or maybe cut the cork in the shape of a heart. Thank you.
