Quick Coaster Mini Book

I love the little shaped coaster albums my Maya Road. You can find tons of different shapes of them in the store here. I used the little coffee cup for this one along with the Basic Grey Nook and pantry album. If you are looking for a quick fun project or need a little gift for someone then this is the perfect idea and can be completed in an hour or two.

Supply list: All you need is a few simple supplies)
  • Coordinating Patterned Paper
  • Die cuts and tags ( I used the ones I had leftover from the Basic Grey Favor Boxes kit but any sheet of die cuts will work)
  • Floss and/or ribbon
  • Package Maya Road Chipboard shapes
  • Sheet of rubons
  • Matching Letter stickers for title
  • Adhesive, Exacto Knife, and ink
Steps:
  1. Adhere all your shapes to the sheets of patterned paper. Cut out with your exacto knife and then repeat with the other sides. Ink all edges.
  2. Adhere small rectangles of cardstock to each piece besides the front cover. The blocks will serve as photo mats later on when you want to add photos. I used 2x3" mats.
  3. Next create your cover. I added a small oval of brown paper to give my cup book the look of a coffee cup. Then I added matching letter stickers in 2 different colors for a title. I used diamond glaze on the brown letters and pink stickles on the pink letters to give them a fun look.
  4. Next finish off the rest of the pages by adding tags, die cuts and chipboard shapes throughout. Don't go too crazy simple is better. Next add a few rub ons here and there and make sure to tie your ribbon or floss onto your tags. And walla your done!
