ETCETERAS: Cork & Gold Glitter Coasters with Lifestyle Crafts

Cork & Gold Glitter Coasters with Lifestyles Crafts via homework | carolynshomework.com  For this month’s Lifestyle Crafts tutorial, I stepped away from a paper project and experimented with die cutting cork. As I become  more comfortable with my Lifestyle Crafts Evolution tool I’m trying new things and get to be a little more creative with the projects.

To make these cork coasters, you’ll need:
  • Lifestyle Crafts Evolution Tool
  • Lifestyle Crafts Cork Adhesive Sheets
  • Circle Nesting Dies
  • Cardstock or chipboard
  • Glitter
  • Dimensional Glitter paint or adhesive
Cut out your cork circles using a circle die. Cut out matching circles in thick cardstock or chipboard. Peel off the adhesive backing from the cork and adhere to the chipboard. This will make the cork stiffer and more durable. Squeeze dimensional glitter paint or glue along the outer edge of the circle. Sprinkle with glitter and let dry.
