Photo-coaster...of love.


So you finally got all of your digital proofs from the photographer. Now you have 50 pictures that you simply can't live without. But what are you supposed to do with all of them? It's kind of hard to pull off dedicating an entire wall to your wedding photos without looking a bit narcissistic...unless you are Kimora Lee Simmons.

So here's a new idea that will allow you to incorporate your pics into your home in an unexpected way - cute cork coasters.

It's really simple.

1. Take your favorite photos (we recommend doing a variety of pics - mix a couple wedding, with nature photos, or architectural photos) and format them in whatever picture manager program that you have so that they are 4x4 in size.

2. Cut them out to size.

3. Adhere them with a craft glue to 4x4 cork coasters (available at Ikea or craft stores).

4. Cut a 4x4 square section of self-adhering laminating sheets and apply over the photo

Voila! Now you can admire your pics every morning while you enjoy your coffee. --a & b

Special thanks to Karen O'Neill for loaning us her wedding pic for this project.
