DIY Coasters

Pin It!

 I found a DIY coaster tutorial on pinterest
and decided to get crafty for a couple of special peeps in my life. 
You guys it was seriously so easy
and so much fun. 

You'll Need:
Pretty Paper of your choosing
Tiles from Home Depot (.16 cents each people!)
Interior Glue or Modge Podge
Brush for glue
Clear Acrylic Spray
Felt stickers

Step 1. I chose two different papers and cut them into 4x4 squares

Step 2. Paint the glue onto the tile and stick the paper on top.

Step 3.We had to put something underneath the tiles so that when we sprayed them they didn't stick to the paper below.
I lost my marbles over this red glitter wrapping paper from Paper Source

Step 4. Spray with clear coat.
Wait to dry.
Spray again.
We did several coats.

I really love the way the coasters with patterned paper turned out. 
Unfortunately, the red glitter paper kept getting air bubbles and ripples
and doesn't look quite as profesh when all is said and done. 
If I could do it all over again I would choose a paper that isn't as thick.

If you make your own I'd love to see how they turn out!!
