Ages ago, probably years ago, I bought these bamboo coasters. Why? Because I saw them used in a creation and now I can't even remember the creation! But, I packed and moved them to the new studio, and they worked perfectly in this boat. After the boat was folded, I snipped a tiny, ever so tiny piece off the top peak. This allowed me to push the stick up through the bottom and stay pretty snug. The tied ribbon also helps hold it in place. What I like about these bamboo pieces, the ends are flat and not pointed, no injuries! The two heart cutouts are adhered together with foam dimensionals, positioned closely, hugging the stick line to hold the hearts in place.
The sentiment I used is from JustRite's Romantic Sentiments set! I think it's perfect for this little boat! Check all the other sentiments in this set, so much inspiration!The banner is created using JustRite Times New Roman font and cut using my Spellbinders Label3 die. I utilized the 25pt font, upper and lower case letters. I stamped out a few more of these to use on my future Valentines!
To spice it up a bit, I added red hot candies to the boat for a fun treat type Valentine! This would make a wonderful birthday favor/decor. Fishing cabin type theme with the right paper would be cool, you could really use most any cutout and create any personalized message or name banners. Oh, the possibilities are endless making creations that are JustRite!
Take good care! See you tomorrow with a request from a reader...a picture of the studio when I am creating! And those questions will be answered!
