ssshh... Gifts for the guys

A few personal gifts for those handsome young men married to my daughters...
No creativity on my part... this project came from Karen of The Graphics Fairy. I followed her clear instructions to the letter and was very happy with the results. These coasters are useful and have a masculine look, hard to find in handmade projects.Having been glued to a sheet of cork and are waiting to be trimmed. I altered some of the images and added names and monograms.
Many great images can be found at The Graphics Fairy
The DAD tile was made from an altered image found at Just Something I Made
I also made a few coasters from photos. The color ones are okay but those done in sepia or black & white seem the nicest to me.

I love that these are very masculine. I may try to make some myself.

They look fantastic!! What a great idea, too! Eric is so particular about using coasters. I might just have to give this project a try. Thanks for sharing!

That is very neat gift for a guy. It is hard to come up with handmade gifts that they will really appreciate.
