Patterned coasters add a fun pop of design to your table. As you know, we love easy crafts and coasters so it’s no wonder that we are back to share another simple coaster diy. This patterned coaster diy was definitely a craft that I would do again and again. You could change up the scrapbook paper patterns you are using for whatever holiday is coming up, you could draw your own designs instead of using scrapbook paper, the possibilities are endless – that’s why I need to make more and more!DIY patterned coasters using resin | Popcorn and Chocolate

It was a lot of fun trying to figure out what patterns I wanted to do for my coasters. A little known fact is that Rose and I used to scrapbook, so we have accumulated a lot of scrapbook paper. It’s so much that I can’t even lift the basket by myself. We haven’t scrapbooked since college so the paper has just been sitting around (apart from making some awesome photo backdrops).

I didn’t want our paper to go to waste so I’ve been trying to come up with some do it yourself projects to incorporate it. These patterned coaters do just that! Stick around to see what else I end up doing with our scrapbook paper 😉

These coasters would make the perfect gift. You could wrap up a bundle of them and give to a friend who just moved as a house warming gift. If I knew someone who just moved I would definitely do that! They would also make a cute hostess gift if you have any parties coming up.

Easter-themed Bunting Flags

bunny bunting flags Hi everyone! So even though it may not quite feel like spring here yet, the sun is out and the birds are chirping away. Also, our apartment is a million degrees so to us, it feels like spring, at least inside… And one thing we love to do as the seasons change is redecorate our apartment in little ways to keep it feeling fun and seasonal. bunny and carrot bunting flags In honor of spring and Easter, we made bunting flags with eggs, carrots, and bunnies on them. We love making themed bunting flags since they are simple to make and they always look so cute! egg and bunny bunting flag All we used here was a pack of scrapbook paper, some off-white or cream colored card-stock, and glue. We have lots of 12×12 sized scrapbook paper lying around from previous craft adventures, but these are pretty inexpensive at any craft store. You could also use the 6×6 size if you didn’t want to buy a big pack. We liked the idea of only using one book of paper to make sure the colors would match nicely. scrapbook paper bunting flags We found a simple bunny and cracked egg stencil online, and Haley was inspired to free-hand the carrot. And look how cute it came out! IMG_5937 We simply cut out each of the stencils and then traced them onto the scrapbook paper and then cut those out. We made the bunting flags by taking a piece of card-stock and cutting it in half and then cutting out a triangle on the bottom. Lastly we glued the scrapbook bunny, egg, or carrot onto the flag. We hung them up by using some string and these cute little clothespins we bought at Target a little while ago. And just like that our apartment has some lovely Easter/spring decorations to lighten it up! Haley and bunting flags I hope this inspires you to make spring bunting flags, and maybe having this up will actually bring spring to Boston… maybe…IMG_5900
