Make It Monday #53 Creative Coasters

Wow! It's been such a full 9 days during the Papertrey anniversary celebrations! I don't think I've posted this much on my blog ever. Today's Make It Monday video, which you can see here, was all about using PTI coasters in a creative way. One of the things I love to do with the coasters is to make little mini books. I made one of my granddaughter a couple months ago using the full size of the coasters. Today, I thought I'd make up a little one of her using the button card size for the book. Little babies change so fast - I need to do one of these every couple months. So I used the coasters to cut out the button cards for the pages, and used the letter dies to cut out the words on the front of the book. I need to work on how to glitter the letters better - I wasn't so pleased with the way they came out. But I'll work on that in another book. I discovered it's GREAT to have the number and letter dies and have a constant source for chipboard letters! So here are some peeks of my little booklet. Hope you enjoy!
