Tupperware Coaster Album

Hi Everyone! Yes, you saw correctly. . .it's a Tupperware coaster album. I stopped by my local Goodwill the other day and I found two sets of 6 Tupperware coasters that were brand new. Initially, I didn't know they were Tupperware until I opened the sealed box which wasn't labeled. Each of the box were 50 cents each. Whoohoo!!

Anyway, I knew they were plastic coasters and bought them for the purpose of altering them into something but didn't know what! LOL!

Well, after looking at it, I decided to create a mini album with two of the coasters and I really like how it turned out. I think it looks better in person.

Here are samples of the coasters. Initially, I was thinking of adding photos to the back of the coaster and use them as actual coasters but I noticed the "tupperware" label in the center and I didn't like the idea that it would show in front of the photo so I decided to cover it with a designer paper. Oh well.




I covered the inside with designer paper from ADT and added CTMH Big Blooms and Deja View prima flowers.

The mini album is a flip page album which I created using cardstock. I cut the cardstock to create initially an accordion album then glued the back side together to create a "flip" album meaning it flips open from right to left like a regular album. Theres a total of 7 pages to this album.
The photos are of my kids.
