Dan the Man and I have a favorite local brewery, and when Dan was there several weeks ago, one of our favorite bartenders was ready to discard some custom-made beer coasters that contained old info. Being the good husband, Dan brought two big stacks home to me. After covering both sides of the coasters with either black or white gesso. I then had a blast adding color with brushes and stencils. Here are a few samples of my craftiness.
I added some embellishments to a few, punched a hole in each, threaded on some ribbon, and now I have one-of-a-kind gift tags!
