St. Patty's Day Coasters


Well, despite my printer's best efforts I am happy to be able to bring you Truly Noted's first free download! I have wanted to start offering fun free downloads for a while so look for more in the future.

Being Irish St. Patrick's Day has always been a holiday that made me feel special. Having red hair, blue eyes and freckles, people tend to gravitate to me with comments and good cheer all day long. And since green is my favorite color I am just a shoe-in!

But being Irish also means most people peg me as a big beer drinker, and while I do enjoy a tasty micro-brew now and then I tend to be a wine-o and skip the hops and barley for the most part. Whether you are drinking green beer or root beer this St. Patrick's Day, make sure to place a festive coaster beneath your glass!

I have created four coasters, each with a different Irish 'blessing' on them. All you have to do is download the free art file, print on some cardstock, and then cut out with your choice of tool. I used a circle cutter and I tried scissors as well. The circle cutter was definitely better at making a smoother circle, but the scissors might be easier for those not familiar with the circle cutter. You could also use a craft knife or x-acto knife.

Whatever way you cut it, I hope you enjoy my first free download!
