Craft #9: Tile Coasters
These turned out so stinkin' cute!! I saw tile coasters done here....and somewhere else, but I can't remember where...but, I thought it was a super idea and HAD to make some!
These I gave to my friend Jenna for Christmas :)
(Here is a better pic of the design!)
1. Tiles (only $.16 a piece at Home Depot)
2. Scrapbook paper of your choice (I used two different ones for these)
3. Modge Podge
4. Sealer (waterproof)
First, I measured my tile so I would know what size to cut my scrapbook paper. The tiles were slightly larger than 4x4, so I cut my paper 4x4 inches so there would be about a centimeter of tile showing around the edges.
Second, I cut my Scrapbook paper to size.
My squares :)
Third, I used a glue stick to glue my papers together.
Fourth, I used the Modge Podge to glue the paper to the tile.
For one tile, I tried gluing my bottom piece of paper to the tile first, then glueing my top piece. Either way worked fine for me.
Fifth, I coated the entire top of the tile about 3 times with Modge Podge. (Let dry between each coat)
Next, after they were dry, I sprayed the sealer over them to make them water proof.
Finally, I added these little babies to the bottoms of my tiles so they wouldn't scratch any tables.
I'm proud of these coasters!
She loved them, so that makes me happy too!
