Coaster Calendar

Today I've got something new to share with you.  I used some 4 x 4 coasters and turned them into this cute little hanging calendar.

I colored my image with Copics, then I distressed the edges of the coasters with some ink, added some ribbon and pearls, then printed out my calendars and attached them with brads.
