Today I made this tri-coaster display for Jay's mom to have during her recovery and the days following her major surgery tomorrow. No flowers or the like are allowed in ICU but a picture of her grandkids is sure to speed her recovery! Just Rite stamps were perfect for this mini display.
The flower border is stamped onto the "solid" side of the patterned paper, die cut and then lightly colored with Prismacolor colored pencils. The center of the circle was die cut allowing the patterned paper from the book cover to peek through. To give the border ring a bit more dimension, I die cut a piece of coaster board in the same manner as the paper border ring and adhered the paper border ring to it. Then I adhered the entire ring to the cover. I mirrored the same process for the back "page". All edges of the coasters and both rings have been sanded with a sanding block.
The sentiments were stamped onto ivory cardstock, die-cut, a bit of edge sponging and then mounted to a petite scallop circle before adhering to the coaster with dimensional foam. Eyelets with grosgrain ribbon bows bind the coasters together and allow it to stand easily.
The center panel is a great picture of the three of them from Christmas Eve dinner. I printed it onto cardstock, trimmed it and mounted it to chocolate cardstock.
Next, the coordinated box :)
4-1/2" square box using the same materials and design as the picture display. Scor-Pal does it again...it's so easy to make a custom sized box that really adds the finishing touch to the gift.
