BBTB2; Masculine Project Challenge

It's my turn to host the current two week challenge at the Bitten By The Bug 2 (BBTB2) challenge blog. I chose the challenge theme of...masculine. I know we've all been making great masculine projects with our Cricuts for Father's Day, now let's show them off!

I made these simple, inexpensive & cool customized drink coasters using some mini pallets I found at the Dollar Tree and of course, my Cricut.

I filmed a quick process video so you can see how quick & easy this project is. I hope you decide to do something like this on your own!

Since I didn't have any wood stain and I wanted these to have some color, I thinned out acrylic paint with water and sponged it on. They look great! I then did a "D" search in Design Space and this simple "D" from the Split Monogram set popped up. I did have to unlock the image to stretch it out a little in order to fit the pallet but other than that, it was that simple!

Check out the video to get more details:

I wrapped them up with a six pack of hubby's favorite beer to make this the perfect Father's Day gift!
