How to make a Love Coaster with Easel

A Quick and Easy, DIY, Valentine’s Decoration or Gift.

The “Love Coaster with Easel” is one of the projects that I made at the StyleTechCraft

booth while at Creativation last week.  

Everyone loved how easy it is to make an easel using a clothespin.

To make the Love Coaster…                               

    • You can use Plain White Square Coasters* or…I made my scalloped coaster using a steel rule die and white chipboard.
    • Cut a heart out of Translucent Red Glittered Vinyl from Tape Technologies using a thin metal die.  Apply the glitter heart to the coaster using a transfer paper made for vinyl.
    • Using my Silhouette Cameo Electronic Die Cutting Machine*, I cut the word “love” out of Black Glittered Translucent Vinyl and applied it directly over my heart using transfer paper.
    • I edged the sides of my coaster in silver, using a Silver Leaf Paint Pen*.

To make the Easel…

  • Glue a Wooden Clothespin* on the back of the coaster with Rapid Fuse Adhesive*.
  • Pull the clothespin open just enough so that the round metal spring comes slightly out of it’s groove.  (Some clothespins work better than others so you might need a little luck.)
  • To keep the clothespin from snapping shut…glue the top ends of the clothespin together.

A couple of guys at the show made theirs into Valentine’s cards.

I told them all they had to do was add a sweet note inside and, they were set.

Maybe I should have told them including  flowers and chocolates is also a good idea.
