Coaster Album?

Has anyone ever made a coaster album? I came across some coasters today at a flea market and wondering if anyone had ever made one and if so can I see pictures?
Here's my great find paid 50 cents a package.

Thank you! I had seen the albums before but couldn't remember where I saw them and when I looked I really didn't find anything in my search. Hopefully I can start on my project tomorrow.

Wow that sounds fun! What a good find! What are you going to use to secure the peices together? Just curious.

When I made mine I just used my Crop A Dile to punch a hole through each one and then I used a clip (can't remember what they're called but they're round and open up and close) and then I put ribbon all around it.

You can also cut strips of paper and attach one side to each one to make it accordian-like.

What a neat idea. I may have to try one, even though I have never paper scrapped. It looks to neat to pass up.

I did a coaster frame. It's where it has 3 coasters and it is connected by hinges. I've never made the coaster albums thought.

That is really cute!!!
