Do you remember a while back when coasters were the thing to play with in the paper crafting world? I bought a TON of them and made boxes, frames, and mini albums with them. Well……as I was trying to come up with a dimensional submission, I ran across the Mix-n-Mingle Album that Close to my Heart sells. It was featured in the Autumn/Winter 2010 Idea Book and brought back in the Spring/Summer Idea book as well. If you look through the Idea Books, you will see that they use this cute little album for more than just an album. Which was my inspiration for this frame. A couple of years ago, I received instructions on creating a standing frame using 4×4 coasters and Close to my Heart’s metal Hinges. That was my 2nd inspiration for this project.
The first one was the original one. My brother’s wedding matched the colors to Sweetheart PERFECTLY!! This will be a gift to them as soon as I get it back from my submission.
