Coaster wall hanging

I decided it would be fun to make a little coaster wall hanging for my 3-year-old niece Sabrina's birthday. Sabrina is actually the daughter of one of my best friends, but she calls me Aunt Michelle and I spoil her like a good auntie should! With her name being so long, it was hard to photograph this. I tried one flat and one hanging, and a close-up shot. You can click any of the pictures for a little larger view.
This is a close-up of a couple of the letters. I used Making Memories designer paper that I've had for a couple of years and Making Memories glittery chipboard letters to match. I threaded organdy ribbon from each coaster, punching the holes with my Cropadile, and tied a bow between each one, alternating between plain and polka dot ribbons. Each coaster has some coordinating Primas, with either Dew Drops or rhinestone brads in the centers.
Supplies:
Paper: Making Memories DP
Accessories: Organdy ribbons, Primas, Dew Drops, rhinestone brads, Stickles (to glue the Dew Drops), glittery chipboard letters from Making Memories, chipboard coasters.
