Step 1: Make a Cardboard Coaster

First, take a piece of cardboard about 5 x 5 and round the corners until it becomes a circle
*Glue an artpiece onto the circular piece of cardboard.
*Wrap plastic wrap around to the bottom.
*Iron to laminate.(optional)
*Voila! A drink coaster, with style!

Step 2: Turn It Into a Container

First, cut a shape of a "t" out onto the cardboard, as in two blocks on the bottom, one in the center, one on each side and one on top.
Cut like above, and make the top flap and the side flaps fold to a 90° angle and make half of the bottom fold up and wrap duct tape around it, to make it steady, and the top will open or close, and now you have a container!

    This project looks awesome but there isn't enough documentation of you actually making it to be a full Instructable. There are two things which you could do. 1) If you happen to have images of you making your project you can create some more steps, add those additional photos into your Instructable and then republish your Instructable. 2) If you don't have any more pictures of you working on your project, that's ok too. That just means that your project is better suited to be submitted as a slideshow. Your images are already in your library, and you can use the same text that you have already written for your Instructable so it should only take a few minutes to create your slideshow and show the world what you made! Thanks for your submission and let me know if you have any questions along the way.
