Purple Cows St. Patty's Blog Hop...

Today is the day for the Purple Cows St. Patty's celebration blog hop... Are you looking for some fun, easy and creative ideas to add some more green to your St. Patty's day fun??? Then join in on the fun and hop along... If you are following along the Purple Cows blog hop, you were just at the amazing and talented Jing-Jing's Blog.

If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop, you can click HERE.

Today I am showing off my simple but cute little coaster set that I made to go along with my coffee cozy.

Simple steps...

Cut chipboard to 3x3 and pattern paper to 3.5x3.5 using the amazing Purple Cows Freestyle Trimmer with wavy click blade. Glue chipboard to pattern paper. Slip inside a Purple Cows lamination sheet and laminate in the NEW Hot/Cold Laminator (found in your local Jo Anns, Hobby Lobby). Trim and laminate again to seal up the cut edges once again...

Be sure to leave a comment on my blog for a chance to win a special green RAK... hehe

Now hop on over to Samantha's blog...

Thanks for looking and enjoy the hop...

For step by step direction on how to make my Coffee Cozy please view my previous post HERE.

P.S. Sorry for being 45 min late. I have a little one home sick today and wrote down the wrong start time. So if you were here earlier and left me a msg on my post for yesterday I will put your name in the drawing for my RAK...

Pin It!
