Christmas Card Coasters

Feel guilty about throwing out all of the Christmas cards that you receive? Then, turn them into a set of coasters, and say goodbye to the guilt.

Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 30 minutes or less

Here's How:

  1. Place the drinking glass on top of the first Christmas card, and move it around until you like the image contained within the glass.

  2. Then, trace around the glass with a pencil.

  3. Cut out the circle, and set aside.

  4. Repeat until you've created your desired number of coasters.

  5. Then, finish by laminating or applying contact paper to each one.

Tips:

  1. The messages inside cards also make attractive coasters.
  2. Hosting a holiday party? Then, make up a large set of coasters before-hand, and scatter them around the house.
  3. Coasters make a great hostess gift. Tie a ribbon around a tall stack, and you've got a no-fail gift.
