Craft Room

I've had these on my mind to do for months.  I saw an example of these at Beneath My Heart.
(Just a note to say, I really didn't want to show Traci's version of this project because I think hers looks better, but it's all good)

Simple.
Sweet.
Easy.
They can be used as coasters, I put burlap on the back because I didn't have cork to protect the table surfaces.  The burlap seems to work well.  And then I thought "hey, burlap on the front" (light bulb)  so I put the burlap on with  Mod-Podge and painted it, then used Distress crackle paint for the stamped area and that's it.  

Easy.

Then .....  I had to play a little more and got in my beads stash and ribbons and added a little bling.

Those look great! I have made the coasters before but have not embellished them like you did. What a great idea!

You can spray them with a clear acrylic gloss to help seal them. I have also used the small fuzzy pads that you might put on the inside of a cabinet or on the bottom of furniture. I put one in each corner on the bottom to keep from scratching the furniture.
