Mini Coaster word album

Mini coaster album ... or what I ended up doing with the coasters I had people "give" me at Lisa's going away lunch!

Cut paper into squares the rough size of coaster.  In the future I would cut a bit larger to make cleaner edges by trimming... but live and learn.

First, cover the coaster with mod podge.
Smooth paper over coaster - using my bone folder.. Pretty squares!   Let dry thoroughly.  Then trim edges and sand using nail file or sand paper...  I inked the edges.  Then I chose ten words to help me focus on my overall word of integrity.. I punched circles and then used rub-ons.  I did fronts and backs.  Then I punched holes in the corner with my crop o dile and used gingham ribbon- and voila.
