I like to give handmade gifts at Christmastime, and was lucky enough to score some photo coasters and frames on clearance last year. I've recycled them, by added stamped images instead of photos.
Stamps - North Coast Creations Santa Paws, Let it Snow
Ink - Versamark or Ranger Archival
Card Stock - Watercolor
Other - STAEDTLER Mars Graphic Markers/Karat Soft Pastels, Waterbrush, Heat Gun, Embossing Powder, Ink Blending Tool, Scallop Punch, Scrap Paper
