Coasters

Hubs and I were at Home Depot the other day looking for mouse traps (yup...we have an infestation going on) and we wondered onto the tile aisle.  I grabbed up two plain white tiles and told Hubs we were going to make coasters out of them.  He had some reservations, because apparently he hates the sound of tiles rubbing against each other and other things.  I didn't know this about him at all.  I told him quietly and sympathetically to deal with it and assured him that all the tile would be covered when we were done.

Yesterday, we went to Paper-Source and searched for inspiration of what to put on the tiles.  We bought this great orange paper that almost felt like linen and some glittery bat stickers.  Later in the day we went to Target and I found some cool Halloween stickers in the dollar spot.  I got those too.

Now, Hubs is not very versed in crafting.  His crafting skills, and I'm so not saying this to be mean, are incredibly below normal.  He's a lawyer.  He's used to being logical and analytical and he has absolutely no patience.  I know that I need to plan really easy crafts for him.  Keeping this in mind, I covered the tile with paper for him, and just left the sticker placement as his duty.  His coaster turned out wonderful I have to say. 

Hubs used the glittery bats and I used the stickers from Target.  I'm really impressed with how they turned out.  Especially Darren's, since as I explained, he has absolutely no crafting skills..

What do you think?

I'm loving these coasters! I just barely made some for the first time yesterday and I'm feeling like such an amatuer looking at these beauties. (notlamecrochet.blogspot)
