Christmas Coaster Mini

Hello Everyone,

Hope everyone is planning a marvelous celebration for New Year's Eve. I'm back with a simple 4x4 coaster mini that I made as a thank you gift. This is the cover. The whole page is made from a page from a calendar. The snowman and tag are on dimensional dots. The color scheme for the mini was red, pink and green. I used papers that I have had for some time.

Pages 1 and 2. The white swirl is a Close to My Heart chipboard piece as is the button. A photo can slide under the swirl. Page 2 is a pocket page created with some Daisy D's paper.
Page 3 is another pocket page. I created the pocket with a piece from the calendar page. It is covered with some pink cardstock. Page 4 is covered with some DCWV paper. The chipboard tag is from CTMH and so is the stamp. Again, a photo can slide behind the tag.

Page 5 is a flip out page. The gift is from the same calendar page. I used some green polka dot ribbon from my stash as a closure. The chipboard frame on page 6 is from my stash. I painted it pink and added a chipboard button. I coated both buttons with some glossy accents for a little shine. The background paper is Paper Studio.

This is page 5 unfolded in one direction. The ornaments were from the calendar page and the journal spot was a Autumn Leaves stamp. The snowflakes are from CTMH.

Page 5 unfolded the other way. More calendar and some stamping.

And this is the back cover. The paper is old DCWV. Here you can see that I edged all of the pages with white paint. The star is more chipboard from CTMH.

Here are the tags from Pages 2 and 3. I backed some cardstock with designer paper and more calendar page.
The backs are journaling spots. i used DI in Worn Lipstick and Pine Needles and stamps from CTMH. The journaling is Archival Ink and Autumn Leaves stamps.

That's it. Simple and quick.
Thanks for the visit. Comments are appreciated. Until next time, happy scrappin.
