I am wanting to create an R2D2 style of coasters made from the round catalog coasters. I already created graphics and actually created the coasters as you can see by the image below, but what I want to do and would like help in the form of ideas, is how to attach the “eye” piece that I also cut out.
I was thinking of just gluing it to the back side and maybe making more wedge pieces to help support it where the curves are but its also a lot taller than the coasters. So maybe I make it smaller? Or maybe copy those edges of the coaster holder and make smaller/shorter versions for the back side to help build up height so it can support the eye?
Another idea was to somehow attach it to the front right where the finger opening is and make the eye moveable or bendable, perhaps on a spring, so it can be shifted away to lift out a coaster and it will spring back… like those old style license plate / gas tank covers.
Any other ideas or suggestions? Thanks!
