Coaster Gift

Was going to post these yesterday, but wasn't feeling well. So here they are. The cute gift I made my friend that you can duplicate!

I started with these coasters. I talked about them here.
Here they are in the stand, but because I was lazy you really can't see it because it is on the black background for the photo box.

Then I used my Sure Cuts A Lot software (which you can purchase through Ashley at Cute as a Fox she talks about it in that post that I linked) to make the vinyl names... you have to flip the image how I do it, but the coasters will last LOTS longer because the vinyl won't get wet... I'll show you how.
So use your software and make the names backwards. Cut the vinyl out like this...

Here they are with the negative part pealed off...

Next you will put it on the transfer tape and then place it on the under side of the coaster. Here they are all finished.

My friend was like... I told you we wern't exchanging presents. I then promptly told her... REALLY it was NO big deal. (plus I got a good post out of it) **insert wink here**

So these were easy, fun to do and totally universal with colors, fonts, styles and gender neutral. So keep this in mind for your next small couples gift or an addition to a wedding gift (I mean you could do initials or anything like that). It is really a great idea for an inexpensive gift that looks like a lot. I loved it! What do you think?
