At my youngest son's birthday party last week, my father-in-law asked for a coaster to set his coffee cup on. And for some reason I couldn't find one! I have no idea where they went...
So that is why I made these coasters. My husband loves Mickey Mouse, so I thought I would make the coasters with scrapbook paper I had left over from a birthday present I made him.
Here's what I used for this project:
Mickey Mouse Scrapbook Paper
Clear Spray Glaze
Tiles (from your hardware store)
Self Adhesive Protectors
First I picked up some white tiles at the hardware store..they were only $0.16 a piece! I love a good deal :)
I cut my scrapbook paper to just shy of 4.25" x 4.25". The tiles are 4.25" so I cut them just a tiny bit smaller than that.
I coated the tile with Mod Podge using a paint brush, and put the paper on the tile. I smoothed all the edges, just to make sure they didn't life up.
Then I took them outside and did a few coats of Clear Spray Glaze, waiting about 20 min between coats.
I let them dry over night, just to be sure.
I bought these self adhesive protectors at the Dollar Store
Then added them to the bottom of the tile.
I love how they turned out!!
I'd say they look pretty darn good on my table :)
This would be such a fun and inexpensive gift to give to someone. There are so many ways to makes these tile coasters. Customize it with their initials, or scrapbook paper.
Another fun idea would be to use Comic Books...actually I might just do that!
Get Creative and have fun with it!
