I know Thanksgiving is our next holiday, but I don’t have any glittery ideas for Thanksgiving and this month on Tombow we are showcasing ideas using glitter from Art Institute.

This JOY project is created with chipboard coasters. I cut designer paper to fit the front and back of the coasters and adhered them with a Mono Glue Stick.

I then cut shapes & letters with my Cricut to spell out J*O*Y and added fun embellishments. The glitter (crystal) was added to the snowflakes with Mono Aqua Liquid Glue. The letters were cut 3 times with white cardstock and once with designer paper, then along with the other shapes was adhered together with Mono Adhesive Dots.

I used a Power Tab (that had been cut into fourths) to adhere the buttons.

These make nice gifts and I hope I inspired you to give them a try.

Be sure to stop by Tombow and the Art Institute blog for more inspiration. Thank you Art Institute for the lovely pkg of glitters!


  1. Debbie, I really like this, they would make great little gifts for people and such a good way to use up some coasters that I have.
