Last week I held my Project Classes for October which was decorating a set of Photo Coasters and then making a coordinating Gift Box to present them in.  I have posted more photos of the full coaster set and how this box actually opens which you will find in this previous post.

Seeing I was holding this class at 3 separate times, I didn’t want to end up with 4 identical sets (my original + a demonstration one from each class), so I decided to use some of the other Greenhouse Gala DSP designs.

For the first 2 classes I went with the same ‘other’ pattern but used a different base cardstock.

I’ve used Baja Breeze on one and Chocolate Chip on the other. When stamping the images for the Photo Coasters I stamped 2 in Chocolate Chip and 2 in Baja Breeze. Seeing there was only 3 colours in this paper (of course that doesn’t include the Whisper White) I thought it would look a bit odd if I did a coaster in each of the 3 colours and then doubled up on just one. I’ve used the Whisper White Satin ribbon for these 2 Gift Boxes.

For the final class I went with this print.

I wasn’t sure how this one would look as it was a pattern I didn’t think I’d use much and didn’t want to end up with just this print left from every pack I buy. So I figured ‘why not use it and see’ and you know what I really like it.

Lots of colours in the print so I was able to do each of the coasters in a different colour. This time around I’ve used Pumpkin Pie Satin Ribbon. I’d have to say the Satin ribbons are a big favourite of mine and would already be my most used ribbon type.

So what do you think?? Do you have a preference??  Leave me a comment and let me know.
