Recycle Craftiness in da Hizzle

One day I was walking through the office and saw a sign letting me know free computer parts for the taking were available in the break room.

I went by to see if there was anything I could incorporate in an crafty project. 

I saw 2 of these. 
My first thought was it would make a cool stencil for a painting or even something cool to glue on a finished painting. 

My next thought was how about coasters for the guest bedroom?

Yeah boy, let's get to it. 

First I found a piece of scrap leather from Michaels. 
Then I cut it to size. 
How am I going to get holes punched in the leather I asked myself. 

Oh, I know, I'll use one of my handy dandy crafty punches. 
The next question is will I use a needle and thread or rivets?
You saw the rivets coming a mile away didn't you? 
 I pounded the rivets in with a hammer. 
Oooh, pretty and stress management too!
Ok, so I got a little hammer happy with one or two of the rivets but I am happy with the finished project. 

I decided to only make one coaster and keep the other one for a stencil.  I have plenty of coasters laying around the hizzle if more are needed in the guest bedroom.

I'm taking a few days of vacation next week so there is no telling what else I may find or create. 

Peace, Love, Laughter, and Soul Y'all.
