Freecycle Friday – Drink coaster mini album

Yay! It’s Friday again…..and you know what that means!

Today’s craft is something that is totally cheap to make….and easy!

And the basic supply is completely FREE!!!

Drink coaster mini album!!

So, I was sitting at Islands a couple of weeks ago with my family, and our server came up to greet us and put down these coasters (just like they do at every other restaurant).

And I looked at them and thought: “These would be perfect to make a mini album!!”

So, before we left, I took the ones from our table…..and a few extras. And even though our drinks were on them, they were just fine once I put cute paper on them.

All it took was some scrap paper and my cricut and a circle punch (and a stamp for the journaling lines)

So………here’s the before!

And here’s the after!

And a couple of pages inside.

So cute!

And FREE!!
(just about)

Have fun!
