  1. Cut the photos as big as the coasters and round their edges.
  2. Glue the photos on the coasters and then put the foil on them, the cards will last longer.
  3. Cut the foil to fit the cards.
  4. For the cards I also crafted a box. I glued red cardstock on white one (so it is stronger). The box is made from a piece of 11 x 12 inch cardstock, folded with my scoring board and measures 7.5 inches (length) by 3.75 inches (width) by 1.75 inches (height). I also glued a little divider in the middle, so that the cards won’t slide back and forth. The box is being closed with my preferred seal (a circle with an eyelet and bakers twine).
