Big Shot Cork Coasters: Happy Housewarming

A couple weeks ago I received an email from a demonstrator in my group who was having trouble with a project she’d seen in the Stampin’ Success demonstrator magazine.  I admitted that I hadn’t really looked at the article about the Cork Coasters, but agreed that I could check it out to try and help solve her problem.

Long story short: we figured out her problem and I got to try a really fabulous project that has been a huge hit at my Workshops this month!  Here they are, all wrapped up with a bow:

The fun part is seeing how they all go together.  They’re so simple!

Pick out a Designer Series Paper (I used Sunny Garden here — I’m going to miss it when it retires TOMORROW!).  I cut a stack of supplies to 5 x 5″ and pulled out my Scallop Circle Die (the big one).

Set up each coaster stack before you cut with the Big Shot.  Here’s the stack:

  • Stampin’ Up! cork sheet (see it online)
  • Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet (see it online)
  • Designer Series Paper of your choice
  • Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet
  • Window Sheet (see it online)

These make an easy custom hostess gift if you’re headed to a friend’s for dinner, or a quick accent for a wedding shower gift in the bride’s colors.

Plus I just love that helping another Stampin’ Up! demonstrator introduced me to this project–I might have missed it otherwise!  If you’d like to be part of my Stampin’ Up! family too, be sure to check the details on my website!

Happy Stamping!

  1. Hi Megan

    I just remembered this project too (can’t remember which SS it was in though) and finally just rec’d all my products. I’ve never used the adhesive sheets before… my question, do you adhere your cardstock/dsp/window sheets to the adh sheets prior to running through the big shot? Just wondering how to get a ‘clean’ stick with the window sheets?! Thanks for your time

    • Hi Kim! Thanks for the note. To answer your question, yes, you do use the adhesive sheets to stick all the layers together before you run anything through the Big Shot. I cut all my pieces down to about 5 x 5″ and then layered the squares in the right order. Once I had the sandwich created and stuck down, then I cut the whole thing with my Big Shot. Have fun with this project! Happy Stamping! –Meg
