Live In Color Tag Ornaments

Hi Friends!  Joyce Shaulis here today with another November tag project.  For this project, I recycled drink coasters and turned them into ornaments.  There are a variety of shapes available anymore, so that makes it more fun.  For these, I used ones that were 4" x 4". 

To begin, I cut out four images from the Live in Color Tag scrapbook paper. 

I stamped onto white cardstock with Mystery, color POP mini ink and the stamp set, Unicorns and Rainbows.  I also used some of the mushrooms, flowers, and bugs from the What's Up Gnomey? set. 
I used markers to color in the Unicorn and Rainbow images and cut them out. 
I also colored in mushrooms, flowers, a butterfly, and a ladybug from the What's Up Gnomey? stamp set and cut them out. 

Using Decoart's Decou-Page and an old paintbrush, I glued the tags onto the four coasters.  Then I glued the cut out images with Decou-page on top of the tags. 

Next, I took the mini POP inks and swiped the edges of the coasters.  For these four, I used Kiss, Fresh, and Ice. 

With a charcoal pencil, I outlined the images and the lines on the tags.  I smudged lightly with a Q-tip.  Then I coated all the coasters with the Decou-page.  After drying, I coated them all with Ultra-Matte varnish. 

Choosing from my sequin and jewel stash, I glued an assorted variety onto the coasters with white glue. 

I then used a paper punch to punch two holes into the upper corners.  Then, I used a 12'-14" piece of ribbon to tie in the holes, making a loop in the center of the ribbon.

These can be used as tags and double as ornaments.  I think they'd be a cute addition for a birthday or baby present.  I hope you enjoyed my project and that it will give you some ideas to recycle those drink coasters.
