Christmas Coaster Mini Album using DCWV & Xyron

Hi there,

Today, I'm sharing a Christmas Coaster Mini Album that I created with coasters, DCWV Christmas Stacks and Xyron Adhesive. I used the Cranberry Christmas and Gift Décor DIY Project Stacks, prompts and tags. This was so much fun to make. I really enjoyed playing with the coordinated elements within the stacks. The wide array of Xyron adhesive made layering effortless. I can hardly wait to add 2016 Christmas pics to this album. Take a peek at my tutorial below.

Step 1: Cut 4" squares, journal spots and strips from patterned paper stack.

Step 2: Line up 4" squares with coasters and begin desired design and layouts for each coaster using strips and journaling spots.  Note: This step enables simple and quick layout designing for each coaster at the same time.

 Step 3: Run 4" patterned papers through Xyron Creative Station and adhere to coasters.

Step 4: Run strips of  patterned papers through Xyron Creative Station and adhere to coasters. Sand edges of coasters.

Step 5: Run coordinating elements through 1.5 Sticker Maker and adhere to coasters.

 Step 6: Using Cropadile, punch holes and eyelets through corner of coasters. 

 Step 7: Run coordinating elements through 3" Sticker Maker and adhere to coasters.

 Step 8: Adhere additional coordinating elements and bows. Add ball and chain.

Step 9: Attach bell, charm, die cuts and bow to chain.
