coaster desk calendar

Springtini from Stamping Bella was colored in using a aquapainter and a combination of SU markers and ink, and then the glass was covered with stickles to make it sparkle like a real martini glass would when the light hits it. LOVE my stickles! You can see all the sparkle better in the close-up.

The corners were then punched with my all time favorite punch - the ticket punch - and layered onto SU Pretty in Pink and Soft Sky cs. The yummy yellow and pink striped paper is from a bulk I found at my local Big Lots. I ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder, punched the corners with the ticket punch, and then layered onto more SU Soft Sky cs. This was then glued onto a 4 inch coaster (I use 2-way glue for this, awesome stuff!). I printed off a calendar from a template I found on SCS, hooked it together with pink brads, and attached it to the second coaster with removable tape so I can reuse the base next year with a new calendar. I used the crop-a-dile to punch holes through each coaster, and tied them together with some pretty SU Soft Sky double stitched ribbon. For the finishing touch, I added Bellas Baubles in the punched corners in shades of pink and aqua.
