So many crafts, so little time!!
I found this super-duper easy project, that I think is practical, cheap (not that I'm trying to being cheap--but you know what I mean) and has a cuteness factor of a 7!!!
AND it uses Mod Podge! Which is always a bonus in my book!
So easy, here it goes:
16 cent tiles from Home Depot
Clear spray paint (I used both satin and flat...I can't tell which one I like best)
Cork (Home Depot has it in rolls with stick back--PERFECT!)
Scraps of Scrap-booking paper (I suppose you could use cloth also)
Cut your cork and scrapbook paper into 4" squares.
Give it several good coats. It takes about 10 minutes in between coats. This will keep the Mod Podge from coming off and your coasters will actually be USEFUL for placing drinks on.
(This is one of the matte finish ones...I like it because it looks more professional....but the gloss is an added bling--you know--shiny!)
Not too shabby, huh?
Go for it! It's easy--the kids even helped me! It's that easy!
They were a big hit at Christmas...well, at least i think they were...maybe people were just being polite! I liked making them, and that's what is important. (I'm kidding!)
