How to Make Coasters Using Chipboard and Card Stock

I love my E2 and wanted to try cutting chipboard so I decided to make coasters for my next martini and crafting party! These were so easy to make and I have detailed directions on my video. Enjoy!

Wow great idea and really pretty. So do you think it worth the E2 when you have an Imagine?? Does somebody really need both?

Kate said...

These are gorgeous! What super coasters for your martini and crafting gatherings. I wish I could be there, too!

Jo said...

Very clever idea. Think of the possibilities!!!

Linda Kaiser said...

Char, thanks for the nice comment. I love my Imagine but also make larger cuts and use thicker materials that won't cut on the Imagine. That's why I love my E too(2)!

I am also enjoying all the new features on the E2 like the light and the new screen. Hope this helps!

Cute idea! You could make seasonal coasters, too. I haven't ever tried chipboard in my E. Maybe it's time to start?!

Hi Linda,
I just love watching your videos! They are so informative and easy to follow! The coasters are super adorable! Love the contrasting colors.
I sure could use a martini just about now!
I am really loving my E2!
Hugs, from Ohio!

I love these, Linda! So pretty! That is so cool that you can save your settings in the E2. That would be very handy. I really want to come to one of your martini and crafting parties. Sounds like a blast!

You are one of the most talented paper crafters I know. You always come up with the most amazing projects and your explanations make it so easy to "scraplift." Thank you. I am going to try some of these for my summer shindigs.

What gorgeous coasters!
I too am loving my E2 and have not mentioned the I purchased the Imagine (again) and have yet to play with it, but I know where to come for tutorials! Thanks for making it easier for me!
