They weren't hard to make at all...I just bought coasters from the dollar store, took off the printed picture, and put leopard print paper and the printed marys on w/ white glue. Then I poured resin on top, and viola! They're so fun to do! Wink Glad you all like them, esp. you, dixie!

ok so ive asked about this on another thread, but with this resin you use, do you add anything to it? and what kind of resin is it? my fiance works at a surf shop and has endless amounts of resin, but im not sure if its the kind i can use...is there a name brand?  i had looked in ac moores but i must have overl ooked it not knowing exactly what to look for... thanks!!!

Hey guys, it's me the super late one! Undecided I just want to shout out a big thank you to my swap partener fiesty for being patient while I was gone, and to the stopmoshin for her help and putting this swap together!
Here are the pics!
What fiesty sent to me:
everything together.

close up of the embellished mary poster.

the pin.


the auto visor clip.....hmmm, gonna have to wait a bit to use this- Im not old enough to drive yet. Wink

What I sent to fiesty:
this is not the box but a similar one- i wrapped the box before I could get a pic. The one I sent her has the virgin de guadalupe on it and more gold embellishment.

The matchbox shrine. I had fun making this and was very temped to keep it. I had some problems with the pins in the top and not being able to open the box but I cut them off and its all good.
I also included a guadalupe scapula which I found and thought was meant to be as I'd just signed up for the swap.

Thanks again for waiting fiesty, you're an awsome partner!
