There are oodles of great gift ideas using photos and circular templates, my favorites being coasters and mouse pads.
This coaster set was featured in Simple Scrapbooks’ Digital Scrapbooking Magazine a while back and I wanted to share it here on the blog.
Using Quick Page ScrapOver templates in CD case size, add your photos and journaling. Save as high quality jpgs and you’re ready to order gifts.
Our Life Lessons Coaster / Circle Album Pak was used to create them…super simple and quick! Remember to keep important text 1/2″ from all edges, allowing for trimming by the vendor.
Here are some close-ups:
This particular print vendor even sent them in their own metal box, allowing you to design a cover.
No longer available by this print lab, you can create a set of 4 same-design rubber backed coasters at Artscow. Simply choose to create your own design and upload a finished round template in jpg format.
An idea to end up with sets of varying designs is to order 4 sets of 4 designs, splitting them up into 4 gift sets.
At least three members of our team have printed with Artscow and were very pleased with the end product. I have not yet tried them.
Watch for our next post on making your own decorative art coasters.
Happy printing! Michelle
