Winter Coaster Wall Hanging using Pebbles & Xyron

Hi there
Today, I am sharing a wall hanging created with coasters, Xyron adhesive and Pebbles Winter Wonderland Collection. I really enjoyed working with this collection. The papers have a white core, which makes distressing super easy.   The pieces within the collection coordinate beautifully. Combining Pebbles with Xyron made this project fun and quick.  I’m including an easy tutorial below:

Pebbles: Patterned Paper
Coasters (5)
Ribbon (Stained)
3D Tape
Hot Glue

Step 1: Cut patterned end strips from patterned paper to be used in various stages of the project. Cut (3) 4 X 4  and (2 ) 4 X 6) pieces of coordinating patterned papers. Note: Use a different pattern for each cut. 

 Step 2: Score the 4 x6 pieces of patterned paper at 2' and fold upward creating a pocket.

 Step 3: Run all patterned paper pieces through the New Creative Station.

Step 4: Adhere patterned papers to coasters and trim around edges. Note: Coasters can be pre-printed or blank. I used pre-printed and covered them with the Pebbles papers in the photo above.

 Step 5: Sand edges of coasters with sanding bar.

Step 6: Run additional patterned paper pieces for each coaster through the New Creative Station and adhere to coasters.
Step 7: Punch holes in coaster using Cropadile and add eyelets. (2 holes at the top and 2 holes at the bottom). Ensure holes are aligned well.

Step 8: Using a Xyron Adhesive Tape Runner, secure flaps on sides to create pockets. Add additional patterned paper strips to coaster.

Step 9: Run ribbon through the top eyelets and secure with knots on back on each side.  Add the second coaster to the wall hanging by running ribbon through one of the eyelets on the second coaster from the back. Pull the ribbon through and run it through the eyelet at the bottom of the 1st coaster- knot the ribbon on the back of the 1st coaster. Cut the ribbon from the back of the 2nd coaster and knot it.  Repeat this step for the opposite side and the remaining coasters as they are added to the Wall Hanging.
 Step 10: Add journaling opportunities to the coasters with a folded card effect. Mount with 3D tape.

 Step 11: Add Pebbles stickers to each of the coasters. Continue creating wintery scenes on the remaining coasters and continue embellishing as desired.
