A Nifty Little Coaster Book!

I told you about VSBN which started yesterday, and one of the challenges was a mini accordion book made from square coasters. I didn't have square coasters so I cut some cardboard that came in a paper pack to 4x4 square and rounded the corners on 2 sides!
The complete tutorial is on Nicole Heady's Blog, Capture the Moment, and it's a pretty fun little project. I wanted to use the last of some patterned card stock from an old Simply Scrappin' Kit, so I made mine with a vintage look and dug out some old school pictures of my friends in 8th grade!
Here's the front:

I considered additional embellishments, but really wanted to keep this one simple...not to mention the constant interruptions from my three year-old - it's been one of those days!
The inside contains two mini accordion style "booklets" that fold out to reveal pictures and journaling. This was really easy, and with the right pictures, it has gift potential!
