Coaster box

What a week! Still I have tomorrow off work and plan on catching up with the housework now I'm feeling a little better. David has a horrible dentist appointment tomorrow so isn't looking forward to that.

Here is a coaster box I made for my good friend Lynne for a swap on the cardmaking forum which she received today. I was praying she'd like it and she loved it.
I used Basic Grey Luscious paper on the outside and Daisy Bucket Garden Gate summer sweet distress paper on the inside of the coasters (which I made). The quotes are by Cloud 9 Woodstone Simple Thoughts and edged with Bazzill Bling card, and the flowers are Bazzill bling and Prima fixed together with Doodlebug Sugar Brads. I used lace which I bought from a store in Beccles, Suffolk and Kaiser Adhesive Pearls to finish it off. Lynne's name was cut using Sizzlets 12 inch decorative Naturally Serif alphabet die on my Cuttlebug. When I put the coaster box together I left the ribbon long. I sent the coaster box flat (unmade) so Lynne could put the box together and then either tie the ribbon and cut the excess off or tie into a bow and tidy the ends.

Thanks for looking.

Hi Valerie,
How gorgeous - very well made and presented.
Any day you feel up to it, and you're off (as well as me off course) you are very welcome to come over - or give me a ring, if you don't feel up to seeing me. It would be lovely to hear from you.
