Recycled Paper Coasters and Journals

Old pattern tissues, books, napkins etc...all find their way into my paper fabric. 
I paint and stamp the pieces after they are dry and then cut them apart. The edges are now fray free and you can create a lot of different things.

Cutting apart the large pieces.

Stacks of coasters kept in order for sewing.

                                                            Auditioning thread colors.

I zigzag the small pieces on the base and then straight stitch the edges through a bottom layer of cork.

                                                        All tied up and ready for sale.

                                   This all started with some journals I tried first.

If you use coasters make them personalized with family photos or theme photos to fit your room d├ęcor. If you have a laminator these are especially easy to make.
