When Inspiration Strikes

The other day as I set about packaging a set of coasters, it occured to me that they could be improved. I didn't like the way the bottoms looked; they were a bit too plain. Certainly not up to par with the really cool coppery topsides.
I sent a message to the purchaser and she kindly indulged my request to decoupage something on the bottom. These are pieces of pages from a 1960 Readers Digest Condensed (it was already beyond help before I started using the pages).
Much better.
I hope the gift recipient enjoys them as much as I did making them. I think I'll be trying similar themes in the future.
