An Altered Coaster

I made this little wall hanging by altering a cheap corkboard coaster. I find these kinds of coasters all of the time, usually in packs of 4 or 8, at yards sales for 10 cents or 25 cents a pack. First, I covered the entire front of the coaster with patterened paper. Then I trimmed and adhered the photo. I added the prima flower embellishments, using some tiny button brads as flower centers. (Thanks, OJ, for those tiny button brads - I love them!) Last, I adhered a ribbon to the back so I could hang it. It's an especially sentimental photo because it's the last one I have of Brian and myself with my Grandma.

Thanks for stopping by my blog,
