I am always looking for new DIY ideas that can double as gifts for people. I was very excited when I came across a tutorial for coasters on my new favorite site Pinterest . I quickly went to AC Moore to pick up some cute scrapbook paper. I already had unused 4x4 tiles and Mod Podge so I was able to give this a try for very little money.
I followed the tutorial directions but I did find that I had to really smooth out the paper and make sure it stuck to the edges. On my first attempt the paper stuck up a bit but on my next try I cut the paper a little smaller and pushed the edges down.
Here is a picture of the finished product.
I also had some larger tiles laying around so I decided to make a larger version. I was thinking it could be used on a counter as a mini tray. Here is the whole collection.
I found this cute dog paper and thought it would make really cute coasters for a dog lover!
I loved the palm tree paper and want to make coasters out of it for my (future) deck. I think with a little more practice these coasters will definitely be a Christmas gift!
