Step-by-Step Instructions for the Rose Stamped Doily Coaster

These coasters are so fun and easy to make - and can easily be created with any stamps of your choice and even on patterned paper if you choose.

Supplies Needed:
3 1/2" Diameter Paper Doilies
Anna Griffin Floral Clear Stamps
Anna Griffin Ink Pads
Xyron Creative Station with the laminate cartridge
Scissors

Instructions:
1. Using the Anna Griffin clear rose stamp {the large one}, place it on the ink pad so just the rose gets the color and stamp on the doily centering the overall rose image.
2. Then stamp just the stem and leaves in the green ink pad and then onto the paper - aligning the rose part up so it connects perfectly.
3. Be sure to let it sit for a little while to be sure it's dry.
4. Once dried, run the doilies one at a time through the Xyron Creative Station using the laminate cartridge.
5. Once done you can simply cut around the outer edge of the doily to trim off the excess lamination and both sides of the doily are now sealed to prevent them from getting wet.

Step-by-Step Instructions for the Super Easy Table Number Frame

This table number frame is so easy and so pretty.

Supplies Needed:
Anna Griffin Metallic Paper {or any paper of your choice}

Paper Trimmer
Printer

Instructions:
1. Create a document in your favorite editing program sized fit your frame {mine was 5x7 and from Walmart}
2. Print the table number and trim to size
3. Place into your frame {I left off the glass to avoid reflection and so the paper texture and sparkle could be seen
4. Choose the dimensional floral stickers of your choice and place on your fram - I like odd numbers so I chose 3 stickers
