I had seen Traci @ Beneath My Heart use decorative napkins and made beautiful coasters. I encourage anyone that has not visited her blog to do so. She is so talented and beautiful. She has no idea how much she has inspired me.
I started with white tiles bought at Lowe's, 2 matching scrapbook papers cut to tile size, modpodge, a brush, roller, acrylic sealer and felt.
I began by coating each tile with modpodge and then covered the tile with the paper. I cut the paper to fit just on top of the tile. I did not cover the sides. I ended up trimming some of the sides.
Once a little dry, I took my roller and pressed the paper to get rid of any bubbles. The roller I bought at Lowe's.
After the tiles dried, I gave them a second coat of modpodge.
After they had completely dried, I took a nail file and sanded around the edges. This helps the coasters from not looking like I just slapped paper on it.
Then I took my distressing ink and coated the edges of the paper and sides of the coasters. I would put the ink on really wet and then wipe it off with a paper towel.
After the ink had dried, I took the tiles out into the garage and sprayed them with an acrylic sealer. I applied about three coats of sealer, letting them dry in between coats.
I wrapped a pretty bow around them and was finished. They turned out so beautiful. I cant wait to make more.
