Beautiful Wings Coaster Calendar

I wanted to make a small gift for my Stamp Club Members last month and had some calendars I hadn't used.  So, while I was at my friend Mindy's house, I made up some of these Coaster Calendars!  Anyone else still have hundreds of these coasters in their stamp room?  lol!  But, I really do use them.

 

By coincidence, it also fits my design team assignment for Late Night Stampers this week, which is all about butterflies!

 

I started by covering the front of the coaster with Pretty in Pink cardstock.  I added a strip of the glittery Sending Love Designer Paper to the front.  Then I used Stampin' Up!'s Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die with Very Vanilla cardtock to make my pretty embossed butterflies!  I love that it embosses AND cuts at the same time!  On the large butterfly, I added one of the 1/4 Chocolate Chip Epoxy Brads…they are TOO fun.  After I placed the brad, I finished off the back with another piece of Pretty in Pink cardstock and added a strip of Magnet Sheet so that it can be hung on the refrigerator!

 

I like it…what about you?

 

NOTE:  I will be closing this round of the 5/8 Satin Ribbon Shares at the end of the week. Please see this POST for more information on the Ribbon Shares and the Paypal button!  If you need it shipped or want more than one share, please use the drop-down menu to make that selection.

Also includes Whisper White Satin Ribbon (not shown).

Very cute!! I just made some calendars also but used 2 of them tied together so can sit on a desk. Like the idea of the magnet, maybe for next year. Thanks for sharing.
