Coaster Gift Box

Here is my Coaster Box! We made these at my Make-And-Take last night! I was worried they would be too time consuming. They are easy...but they take time! But I worried for nothing...everyone finished. Two gals even made two! So, I am thrilled! I think everyone loved their boxes! It was fun hearing every one's wonderful ideas for what they will be using their boxes for. Jess had the great idea of putting note cards and a pen in one. Hmmm...I will totally be stealing this idea. Other uses for the boxes: potpourri, candy, cotton balls, barrettes, and tea light candles. They really look cuter in person than on this blog (seriously).
For a tutorial on how to do this box, log on to:

The only thing I changed was the glue. I bought the glue they recommended, but I didn't like it. So Shauna (from the SU list serve) recommended Crystal Effects for the glue! Thank you, Shauna! Boy - that was waaaaaay better than the other glue. It worked perfectly.

I bought my coasters from The service was great - I had my coasters in less than a week! I will be probably be ordering more around Christmas time.

These will be great with Christmas Designer paper and Red Ribbon. Filled with Candy Canes and an adorable.

Coasters (medium stock) 4x4
