Simple DIY Chipboard Coasters

I needed a really quick house warming gift.  I purchased a gift card for the couple.  But I also wanted to give them something handmade with a personal touch..  I thought chipboard coasters would be perfect. You can make lots of these for a small price.  These are disposable, so I made a stack of them.

Here are the things you will need to get started:
  - Round chipboard coasters (you can purchase here)
  - Vinyl
  - Electronic cutting machine

I wanted to use the words 'home sweet home'.  I just typed it out in my cutting machine software and then just used the fonts I liked most.  Simply cut it out and apply to coasters.  I added a great ribbon and I had an instant gift

Teacher's Gift Under $3!

I saw this package of gum and knew I would be able to do something with it.  The first thing I thought - this would be cute as a teacher's gift using craft supplies I already had on hand.  Here is how I made it.
Extra Sugar Free Gum - 35 stick package
Scrap piece scrapbook paper or card stock
Mini clothespin
Washi Tape
Glue Dots
Your choice of paper punches

1. Remove gum from package
2. Use the paper insert as a template and trace onto your scrapbook paper
3.  Cut
4.  Use the gum insert as a template again to fold the scrapbook paper
5. Insert the scrapbook paper into the plastic package
6. And decorate - I used ribbon, a covered clothespin and added a tag.
7. Have fun with this one.

Lunch Box Notes + Printable

I've created a set of Lunch Box Notes - perfect for kids as well as adults alike.  I love the idea of encouraging anyone!
Here in Texas the kids have been having state testing in school.  So, think about how a child would feel to sit down at lunch, open their lunchbox after a stressful test to be surprised with a cute little note of encouragement.

Just print, cut them out with your paper trimmer and insert into a lunchbox.

You can find the printable here.  Have a great week!
