My cousin over at Mine for the Making made these coasters with her great find at the dollar store and I thought I’d try and use Mod Podge for the first time as I have been inspired by her! So here goes.
I used her tutorial which you can find here. I couldn’t find dollar store coasters, although I have seen those dreadful lobster ones before. However, I ended up with a fantastic find! I went on ebay and found round coasters 12 for $1! Here’s the link to that vendor.
Anyway, I started with the coaster and followed Mine for the Making’s tutorial…but failed miserably. I couldn’t quite get the cut-out to match up with the size of the coaster and even after trying a razor, a scissor and a rotary cutter…still, it looked pretty crappy. Luckily! I just bought a silhouette and had a bright idea- I measured the coasters (3.75in) and printed out all of the circles on the designed paper from there. I got a perfect cut! No trimming necessary! I actually used my tip from last Tuesday and used wallpaper for my coasters.
They turned out really cute! Here’s the finished product: I guess I’m not as crafty (an definitely don’t have as much patience) as Mine for the Making but this worked for me!
