Aghhhhhhh these are so awesome. One of my favorite gifts to handmake and give! These DIY coasters are simple and fun and are super easy to make several at a time. I have a few different varieties that I use at work and in my craft room. I use them to set my drinks down on or my hot glue gun. When I look at them, they make me happy. It is the little things sometimes! Hopefully you can make a few and give them out to your friends or keep them for yourself and bring yourself or someone else a little joy to the day. Checkout the steps below to easily make your own creations.
I cut paper into 4×4 squares and they fit well with a perfect white border that gives the coaster a clean look.
- First I cut the paper to 4×4 squares with a paper cutter.
2. Then, I took a ceramic coaster and applied a thin layer of modge podge onto the coaster.
3. I put another thin layer of mod podge onto the back side of the 4×4 paper.
4. Next I lined up the paper where I wanted it to sit onto the coaster and then smoothed it down and coated the top of the paper with a foam brush to smooth out the air bubbles. I let it dry and then completed a few more coats of mod podge onto the coaster in between dry time. Easy Peasy!
