Thanks! And I was lucky to have a source for the letters. I was given the letters to use in my class but my kids were to old to use them. But I was asked several times where I found all the blank pieces Good luck finding letters if you decide to make them for your SIL.
My boyfriend and I love scrabble so I decided to make him these scrabble coasters as a Christmas/getting an apt together gift. I didn't want the coasters to just be a bunch of random letters so I came up with a list of words that have to do with drinking (types of drinks, types of glasses etc.) I also didn't want the coasters to be huge so I needed the words to be five letters or less. Making the list was easy; arranging the words so that they connect like in scrabble was a little more difficult. I made six different coasters all with different words. I took one picture of all six (it didn't turn out the best) and I took three close ups of the coasters I liked the best. Here is my completed project. Although he loved them he still forgets to use a coaster most of the time!
