Felt coasters

I've been looking for these coasters every since Barb mentioned them on her blog.

I finally ran across them at Michael's not to long ago. To get more ideas for using them, I challenged my hostess club gals to each make something with a different one. There are 4 different coasters. Yellow, green, purple and pink are the colors. The pink and purple are the same but the green and yellow are completely different from the rest.

I used the green one on the scrapbook page - I just cut the middle out of it and used it for a frame.

The yellow I used 2 tiny flowers and covered a stamped flower instead of coloring it.

The pink I used on a card that I had made for the card class a last week with a few slight modifications.

Then I was brain dead and had my friend Tracy come up with the final card. She used both the pink and purple and really sparkled it up.

Now, a little bit more close up.

This is what the girls came up with:

So, what do you think?

Cute idea! I think some diecuts will also cut felt and you can buy it in sheets.

Very cool projects Suzanne! I've seen those at Michaels- may have to get some now that I know the possibilities!

These look great Suzanne and I bet your ladies had a blast creating. I'm going by a Michaels today so I hope I can snag some of my own.
