Wine coaster

Good morning, 

I just wanted to show you a quick coaster idea.  I love to recycle and today I made a coaster for me.  Yes, I made something for myself for a change.  I took an old scratched cd that was in my "recycle to be used" box and mod podged some purple paper that I got from the Robin's Nest.  Since I've been on their design team I can honestly say I have so fallen in love with her papers.  This paper is called Plum Classic Glitter cardstock. 
 It so reminds me of a'll find out in a bit.  It's got bits of glitter embedded in the paper and is so sparkly cute.  Go check out all her papers, I'm sure you will find something you can't live without.  
I cut a circle of the exact same size as the cd, see the glittery paper?
If you are on facebook I'm sure you've seen all these fun and crazy sayings.  My daughter actually added this one to my timeline because I'm a wine fanatic and that's when I knew I wanted to make something with the picture.  Now you understand what I meant about the paper looking like a grape?
So I burnt the edges of the picture a bit to make it look old (I remember doing this in with my Holly Hobby pictures in middle school).  Boy does that age me or what?
Then I mod podged the papers to the cd, inked the edges of the cd and a bit around the picture again.  Sealed it really well with the mod podge again and 
now I have my very own wine glass coaster.  What do you think?  I'm loving it for sure.  I did paint the underside of the cd and added some felt "feet" so as not to scratch my wood furniture.  Now I just wish I had some time off to relax with my glass of wine and new coaster, but I'm sure I will fit a glass of wine in somewhere soon.  

As always, have a great day and God Bless.
