Hello everyone! Today I have a fun DIY Sizzix Coaster Cocktail Banner to share with you. This project features Sizzix dies from Eileen Hull, new cocktail stamps from Patti Sokol, plus inks and embellishments from Tim Holtz and Ranger Ink. Serve drinks in style at your next cocktail party or get together by adding a little flair to your bar set up.
I’m delighted to be the guest designer over at Frilly and Funkie for the “Cool Water” Challenge. It doesn’t get much cooler than an ice-cold beverage don’t you think? In addition to the “Cool Water” theme I have also included the “Red, White and Beautiful” theme from the Art with Heart challenge by adding primary colors accented by classic black and white elements to by design.
You can easily create this Coaster Cocktail Banner project with just a few Eileen Hull Sizzix Die cuts and as much (or little) inking, stamping and stenciling as your creative heart desires! Most of the supplies used for this project can be found at The Funkie Junkie boutique .

STEP 1: Diecuttting- Die cut just the top part of the cupcake stand using the Eileen Hull Cupcake stand die. *I cut my pieces out of matbord but you can also use chipboard. Next, die cut bows from Coredinations Black Magic Cardstock. Last but not least die cut Mirrored sheets using the smallest circle from the Tim Holtz movers and shapers set (these will be used for adding letters to your banner)
STEP 2: Ink edges of Cupcake stand die cut with Black Soot Distress Paint then stencil bottom corner with Tim Holtz stripes stencil and Black Soot Distress Ink.
STEP 3: Add a pop of primary color by stenciling the top half with a Dylusions polka dot stencil in Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean, and Mustard Seed Distress Ink.
*New Favorite Things Alert! Patti Sokol Cocktail Stamps and Tim Holtz Motif Paper*
STEP 4: Stamp Cocktail images on Tim Holtz Motif paper in Archival Ink. Keep a paper towel handy to immediately wipe away some of the ink to reveal the “motif” (this paper is the coolest)
Speaking of cool things, aren’t these Cocktail stamps from Patti Sokol great? If you would like to get your hands on a set you can find them HERE. To see more of Patti’s fabulous art you can visit her Blog HERE
STEP 5: Stringing your banner by punching holes in the top corner. I strung my banner with lace leaving approx. 4 in of space between each coaster.
STEP 6: Sand black magic bows to reveal color underneath and secure to banner with decorative brads.
STEP 7: Apply mirrored circles, ransom letters and Motif paper cocktail stamps to banner.
*TIP* To make ransom letters stand out more outline them with a white chalk marker
Now all you need to do is hang your lovely new Coaster cocktail banner and get to mixing some delicious beverages!
