Cuttlebug Challenges Week #3

This week's Cuttlebug Challenge was to make an altered item using your Cuttlebug Embossing Folders. I chose to make this altered coaster container. I picked up these large sized coasters at Outback Steakhouse. I love these because they are bigger and can make a taller box. So I thought it would be great for scissors. I ran hot pink and green sheets of cardstock through my cuttlebug using the D'Vine Swirl Embossing Folder. I then used a glue stick to adhere them to the coasters. I used my Crop-A-Dile to make the necessary holes and set the eyelets into place. I used cream ribbon to string the container together. I then used my hot glue gun to add Prima flowers and lace trim. Next, I adhered the butterflies which were cut/embossed with the Cuttlebug Butterfly Die/Embossing Folder. This was so easy to do and made a perfect place for my scissors. Thanks for looking! Have a great weekend!
