Barb's Flower Coaster Challenge

I've been dying to get started on Barb's Challenge and today was finally the day! These felt flower coasters she found are so cute, and they just scream, LILLY ANNA! So fun!

I was also tickled to try out by Big Bite! It does all the great things we love about the Crop-A-Dile, but it reaches 6 inches into your projects and sits on the table. It cuts metal, wood, leather, fabric, etc. and sets the popular sizes of all your eyelets, snaps, gromlets and more! The Big Bite does the punching and setting in the same area, so it takes a little getting used to its use. You slide the indicator on top to one of three positions for setting, small holes and large holes. Then you line up your project under the appropriate tool. I made a small mark on my flower and watched that dot while I punched holes in the coasters. Then I set snaps into the ribbon and flower to make a little "hanger" for my little wall hangings.
These are my girls, Katelyn and Liliana. Most days they are this sweet to eachother and I made them each a wall hanging to remind them of fun times together. Kate is done with school, so we have lots of time to play together! If you'd like to see some of the other things we're up to, check us out here.

TAC Supplies: Lilly Anna Paper, Lilly Anna Ribbon & Hardware, Designer Dries Clear Glue, This Girl stamp set, punches and/or die cuts.

Lots of people have commented on my Bella Flor desk cubes and have been making their own versions too, like Chelsea. She did hers in Mia's Cottage. So cute! People have also asked me questions about the project by posting a comment below my entry. You can follow the conversation by going to the original post, viewing the comments, or even subscribe to the comments that are posted for a given topic. I love to compare notes, so if you like a project, try it out and post a link or a question today!
