Coaster Frame

This is my coaster frame I made to hold my granddaughters first birthday picture.
She was a gooey mess! I used everything from my October kit from Wish on a Scrap. Loreen put together such an awesome kit and the colors are gorgeous! Reese's colors for her 1st birthday were pink and brown. This paper fit the colors perfect. I used two coasters and cut my cs 4x4. I rounded the ends and then used my exacto knife to round the corners more on the coasters. The scalloped frame part on the right side, I used my nesties for that. Worked okay, my coasters are very very thin, don't think this would work with a thick coaster. I ran it through my cuttlebut several times for the cut. Actaully I put 2 sheets of white cardstock under my C plate to make it a little tighter. Be careful, this is a good way to break that handle right off! When I turned the handle, I didn't use the turn KNOB, I held it close to the machine itself. I also used my square nestie for the center cut. Then just put it all together. The sentiment was generated on the puter the size to fit the tag. This was so much fun. A little out of my comfort zone altering something! But I did it!!
Thanks for stopping by and hope everyone has a great weekend.
