    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Heather writes: "I recently bought some "coasters" (a little thicker than cardstock) and I don't know how to craft with them! Any ideas?"
    A: There are some great ideas for using chipboard coasters in our tutorial section! You can use them as covers for mini albums - check out the Squash Book, Coaster Mini Book and Jacob's Ladder. You can stitch or hinge the coasters together to make an open topped gift box or a Laced Luminaria. A few more ideas from Pinterest: Top with sticky notes held with a binder clip for a mini clipboard. Die cut embellishments using steel rule dies. Create a wall hanging, mounting decorated coasters on wide ribbon. The surfaces can be stamped and watercolored too.
