Mosaic Christmas Ornament and Tutorial

This is a cute Make & Take that Scrapbooker's Paradise did for Toonie Thursday this week.  They always have such cute cards, but I especially liked this one as this technique could be used for so many things! I'm using mine for ornaments, but you could make tags, coasters, cards, etc, and not just for Christmas.

 The Make & Take (front and back)

After buying only a few supplies I went home and make a couple more so far with my 4 year old. I'm thinking everyone on my Christmas list would love one of these!

 For this one I used a strip of paper across the middle instead of ribbon tied on after.
 How to:
Cover a chipboard coaster with Sookwang Tape on each side and trim around with scissors to remove extra.  Cut up strips of desired paper into random shapes and place onto coaster with small spaces in between.  Sprinkle embossing powder onto coaster, which will stick to the Sookwang Tape in the spaces.  Tap off and heat emboss. Repeat with other side. Tie ribbon around coaster and ink edges with desired ink color.  I used a fast drying pigment ink pad, directly on the coaster. Choose die cuts or stickers and pop up with foam dots or apply directly to the coaster.  Embellish with glitter if you wish, and then punch a hole in the top center and tie with ribbon.

Tip: Good idea to use Teflon coated scissors if you have them to avoid having to clean the sticky tape off your regular scissors.  Also, scraps of the tape can be overlapped to cover your coaster and will not show seams once you cover and emboss.
