Ephemera Calendar

I created this coaster calendar for
my Sisters birthday. We don't do
gifts, but we usually make a little
something for each other. She loves baking, coffee and reading, so that is the direction I took.
The coasters are held together with
a hinge and brads. I attached it
to the back of the coasters after
gluing the DP on, put the brads through and then glued the DP
on the front. All images are from
Hot Off the Press Vintage Ephemera
collection. Well, the keys pocket
watch and coins are stickers by
American Traditional Designs. I
printed the calendar pages off
Splitcoaststampers where you will
find many sizes and styles. The calendar
is 1 1/2" x 2" and I resized the printout
before printing on parchment paper.
Some of the images were not the size I
wanted, so I photographed them and then
printed on parchment paper.
(wish I would have thought of this before
using some of them on other projects!)
The coasters will get a few coats of Mod Podge as soon as
I locate it. Let me know if you have a clue where I put it!
I have another version of the coaster calendar in my gallery
at splitcoast.
