October Afternoon project #2

Here's my second item for October Afternoon.

I knew that I wanted to do some sort of altered project, but I wasn't sure exactly what. Well, it was Earth Day, so it only seemed appropriate that I repurpose a coffee sleeve! I love altered projects, and this one was pretty easy and really fun to do.

Here's how:

Sand any design and/or writing from a coffee sleeve.
Punch a 2" scallop circle from cardstock.
Die cut letters and a 1.5" circle from patterned paper.
Cut a strip from the middle of the circle wide enough to fit the letters.
Ink the edges of all the pieces, including the coffee sleeve.
Adhere together. (see picture for layout)
Glossy accent the letters and let dry.

VoilĂ ! Now you have your very own custom coffee sleeve! =)
