So I have obviously felt extra crafty this weekend and coasters seem to be my thing right now.
I bought some regular white tiles at Lowe's and wanted to make some coasters with paper and mod podge since I haven't made any like this yet.
These coasters were pretty simple too but took some more time than the other ones I made.
1. A cutting mat
2. An exacto knife
3. A paint brush
4. Mod Podge
5. Scrap book paper (these are the four designs I chose to use)
6. Four white tiles (or however many you wish; I got these for 16 cents at Lowe's)
7. Krylon Protective, Non-Yellowing Clear Finish (not in the picture)
The first thing I did was place the tile on the scrap book paper and cut around the edge of the tile with the exacto knife. I cut the paper slightly smaller than the outline of the tile so that the paper doesn't hang off the edges of the tile. Also, I just used the edge of the tile to measure as opposed to using a ruler because I like the edges of the paper to be crooked and a rough measurement. If you prefer a straight line, I would suggest using a ruler to measure the exact measurements of paper to use on the tile.
If the Mod Podge appears as a white coat, don't fret as this is normal. Mod Podge dries clear so even if you coat it a lot, it still will not show when it dries.
Here are a few things I added onto the top of the paper with Acrylic paint after the Mod Podge dried...
Krylon Clear Finish onto the top of them. I did a few layers of the spray to be on the safe side and added rubber and cloth stoppers to the bottom to keep them from sliding around and from scratching the surface they are placed on.
Well I believe I need a break before I get started on my next Pinterest project! :)
