Very lucky yesterday, I picked up two sets of cork coasters from my local op shop $2 for the lot!
Of course I had intentions for them, recovering with old childrens books in the same way I did the Bambi coasters.
The two books chosen this time - a damaged Beatrix Potter book from the op shop, which had been coloured in by a kiddy at some point. And a vintage Red Riding Hood book, written in Spanish, given to me by my friend moving overseas, she had already cut it up to use pictures in a craft project of her own.
Choosing images from the books, tracing around coasters, and cutting, gluing, glazing...
And here they are
Two Christmas gifts complete, tied with ribbons from my craft box. They are being sent to the UK tomorrow!
