But then I stumbled upon this little post and knew I had to give it a try. I decided to personalize my coasters rather than use napkins or other decorative papers. I used my computer for the designs and printed them onto regular computer paper, cut it out and mod podged it onto the tile. I then sprayed them with clear enamel and glued cork sheets to the bottoms. Just a few tips I learned - DO let your bottom layer of mod podge dry after sticking on your paper, otherwise you may let air in and it will pucker. I used two layers of mod podge on top - two thin layers, let dry in between. I found my cork sheets for only $1 each in the scrapbooking aisle at the Dollar Store.
All in all I spent $5 on all 10 coasters! Can't beat that price.
I added the people coasters to the gift basket for my little sis:
(I don't know why my husband got a PC card (for sundae makings) that says Congrats! But I have plans to make a little puff box to put the card in).
I am looking for white mugs that I can customize for it as well, but so far, no luck. Of course, as I've said before there are no box stores near me (closest is 40 mins away) and I don't want to drive there this time of year because it is insanely busy and for two mugs, not worth it! I'll figure something out! The last step will be to add a movie to the bundle. This is my last gift to finish! Everything else is done and wrapped. How about you? Are you ready for Christmas?
Happy Coaster Making/Holiday Preparation!
