It's Lizzy from the Facebook Inspiration Team. I'm here today to share how to make some no-sew felt coasters using Lawn Fawn dies.
Here's the how-to:
|Supplies: An assortment of felt, a circle die, smaller dies to go inside the circle, glossy accents, |
scissors, and twine and a hole punch for creating a little package.
|Start by die cutting 8 circles (4 of one color and 4 of the other). |
This will serve as both the base and top layer of the coasters.
|Next, die cut the flamingo from 4 circles (2 yellow and 2 gray).|
|It should look like this when you're done. |
You'll be using the gray flamingo to go inside the yellow circle and
vice versa-- can't waste any precious felt!
Now you could stop here and have some nice looking coasters as is, but I wanted to complicate my life and create a little scene ;) So here are the instructions for creating a scene that pieces everything together for a flat look:
Next, die cut 4 green "hills" from the long banner die that coordinates with the Good Fortune stamp set. *As a side note, I tried cutting a hill by hand, but felt doesn't seem to be as forgiving as paper, so I improvised to find the closest thing to a hill die in my stash*
|The flamingo's feet need to be cut out of the hill, so nest the flamingo die in the center, |
tape to the green felt, and die cut.
|Now the last step to creating a flat look. Nest the banner die so that it lines up |
with the hill, tape to the gray felt, and die cut.
|Ready to adhere the back piece now.|
So there you have it! An easy way to make no-sew coasters!
This is such a fun project and perfect as a little gift for the upcoming holidays. The different coaster possibilities are really endless-- I personally can't wait to get my little hands on Lawn Fawn's new leaf dies so I can make fall-themed coasters.
I'd love to see what you guys create! Leave a link to your project in the comments below so we can see what you've made!
