Snapdragon Snippets and SVG Attic September Challenge

Our challenge this month is FALL (can include Back to School and Halloween). This is a month long challenge and you can make anything that strikes your fancy with a FALL or Back to School or Halloween theme as long as you use files from Snapdragon Snippets and/or SVG Attic.

I have some inspiration for you today using the harvest corner and block vinyl or stencil Design ID #50618 

I was shopping at the craft store two weeks ago and came across a lot of cork products including round and square drink coasters. I've been wanting to get some fall coasters but when I saw the cork, I knew I had to make my own using the HARVEST CORNER AND BLOCK VINYL OR STENCIL cutout from Snapdragon Snippets.

These are very simple to make.

1. Pick out your contrasting papers. I used Graphic 45 for my choices.

2. After cutting the square design out to fit the coaster, I used a corner punch to round the corners.

3. Mod Podge the background on and let it dry.

4. Mod Podge and piece the HARVEST CORNER AND BLOCK VINYL OR STENCIL on and let it dry.

5. Mod Podge over the entire coaster to make sure all pieces including the edges are secure.

6. Use a water sealant to seal your work.

***I made four of these and it took me less then an hour to cut out all the pieces and assemble. I let the Mod Podge dry overnight before adding the sealant.
