I love to alter things! I picked up these great coasters at a local mall. And here's what I did:
Apply glue stick all on one side of coaster and apply designer paper. I used Cutie Pie and Brocade Background and another paper I had in my stash. Trim excess and corners. Repeat on all sides. (2 coasters). Then I stamped the year on the front with a set of acrylic number stamps I have. (can't remember the name) The calendar was printed out on my computer and then cut. I then punched holes with my Crop-O-Dile and attached it with my Square Rhinestone brads or my Circle Rhinestone brads. Then I held the front and the back coasters together and punched holes at the top with the Crop-O-Dile. I put Jumbo Eyelets on both and set them with the Crop-O-Dile too!!! (I LOOOOOOOOVEEEEEEEE this tool!) I tied them together with the Double Stitched ribbon or used the Satin ribbon that was on special. I added buttons, and little clips that I also had in my stash. I can't wait to make more of these!
The one done with the Cutie Pie paper is for my mother so I stamped the heart around her birthday and did same in March for my Dad's!
I got the template from CAT on SCS .
I got the coasters at a seasonal store in the mall called Pubdecor. They had a web site, but now it is down! Don't know if it's been hit now too much or not!
You may also want to check your local liquor stores. I saw a rectangle one at the register area of one the other day but only took one. Maybe they have some and could sell them to you. Sorry!
