Altered coasters

             Graduation Gift

I made this little box as a graduation present for my daughter.
It's the first time I have ever made one and it was a bit
challenging to make it fit together neatly but I got there after a lot of jiggling.

I added this bought photo frame.
I dismanted it so it could be attached to the front.
This is the original photo that came with the frame.

Empty frame awaiting a photo of my daughter on her graduation day.

One day I will change the tag that says
'graduation day' (it's a bit daggy), but I don't live in the same area as my daughter anymore
and I can't travel at the moment after back surgery.
I missed her graduation because of my bad back but got to see it live streamed on-line so that was a suitable consolation, plus my brother (as well as seven other family members) attended and took lots and lots of photos for me.

These coasters were purchased at an opportunity shop and cost about $1.
They were brand new still in the box.
I'm pretty happy with the way my altered project turned out and I think my daughter was happy with this gift.
