officially official: craft night info

IMG_4667_coasters.jpg

So for the next couple of months, I will officially hold an open craft night each and every tuesday. This coming tuesday, we will be making these.

Now in her tutorial, she uses felt on the bottom. I used a cork contact paper which I think will hold up better and it's self-stick, so it saves me a step. Problem is, it's $10 a roll at Target. So if you want to splurge on the cork back, I would recommend going in on it with someone. There is plenty of roll to share and you can keep your cost down per piece.

I bought the tiles at Lowe's for .16 cents a piece. Talk about inexpensive. And the scrapbook paper is part of a pack I found at Marshalls/TJMaxx for $6. A steal for 50 sheets of paper and all the coordinating's already done for you.

If you don't have a cutting mat, a clear lined ruler, and an xacto knife, I HIGHly advise you to pick those items up. They'll be a small investment now that will pay off big time in the long run. Also, you'll need some mod podge. You may already have some from when we made the chip clips.

SO check out the tutorial here for a list of supplies and steps or just follow this quick list and i'll explain everything when you get here:

mod podge
brush
xacto
ruler
cutting mat
scrapbook paper
4x4 square tiles
felt or cork contact paper for backing
clear acrylic spray sealer

I think that's everything. And don't forget, you don't HAVE to do the project, you can simply bring something you're already working on and just join us for the company. Hope to see you on tuesday {6pm}!
