Celebrating Turning 80

My FIL turns 80 in September. 
 We had a party for him this past weekend. 
 It was at my BIL's house on the lake which was nice.  
There are 7 kids in my husband's family and everyone was able to make it.  
Not all the grand children were there but all the children were. 
It is a big, crazy, fun family to be a part of.  

When I woke up on Sat I decided that I needed to make something to bring as a gift 
(even though it was supposed to be no gifts).
  You know, just something small. 
 I decided on coasters.  
I found a great tutorial here on how to make wonky coasters and I was off. 
 I had left over strips from the napkins so thought this would be a way to use some up. 
 Here are the finished coasters.  

It took me about 2 hours to make a set of 8.
I really love how they came out too!

So here is the original family

Just the sisters

Just the brothers

How was your weekend??

Super idea, I know they say no gifts but you have to bring something.
