New Years Pillow Box Freebie!

I hope it's not too late to be posting about New Years parties since it's only a couple of days away! I just finished a new Party Pack for New Years, and I have a matching pillow box freebie for you today. I have become a little obsessed with these pillow boxes lately--they are so stinkin' cute! And, the possibilities are endless! I have a whole bunch in the works for Valentines Day--perfect for little class gifts or party favors.

Here is a picture of the New Years pillow box:

And here is the Freebie--just right click and save, then print it out on 8.5x11 white cardstock.

Here is a look at the New Years Party Pack available in my store HERE!

Hope you all have a wonderful and safe New Years!!!

Christmas Tile Coaster Set

Last year, I made this set of 4 tile coasters for neighborhood gifts, and I love the way they turned out! Here's a little peek at what I did:

First, I bought tons of 4 inch white tiles at Home Depot--I think they are about .16 each. Then I printed out this set of 4 Christmas prints onto white cardstock and cut them out. These prints are available at my Etsy Shop HERE!
 Next, I Mod Podged the back of each print and centered them on the tiles. Then I flipped them over and let them dry for a few minutes. I also covered all the counter tops in my kitchen with wax paper first, just to make clean up easier.
 Then I slathered Mod Podge all over the front of them and let them dry. I had tiles covering every inch of my kitchen!

 When they were dry, I just put 4 peel-and-stick rubber dots to the bottoms of each tile to prevent any surfaces from getting scratched.
 Then I wrapped each set of 4 coasters up in a cute bag tied up with cute Christmas ribbons.

Tah-dah! A very cute and inexpensive little gift. :)
