Okay so I'm trying to get a jumpstart on my Holiday Gifts...I always have grand ideas but never have the time during the actual holiday season! So I'm working on some cool family gifts now that way I have a headstart :)
These handstamped coasters are FABULOUS! Super adorable, useful, inexpensive and so easy to make. Who wouldn't love a set of these...
The process is simple.
*Find beautiful stamps, pretty ink pads, felt circles or squares, hot glue and spray acrylic sealer.
*Go buy some 4x4 tiles (top photo are tumbled tiles 9 in a pack for $4.50 at Home Depot / bottom picture regular 4x4 ivory tiles 16 cents each at Home Depot!)
*clean them off with water, dry them
*stamp them with your pretty stamps
*bake them on cookie sheet 350 for 20 minutes to heat set the stamp ink
*turn oven off and let cool
*hot glue felt to back of tile
*spray with one coat of sealer
*stack them and wrap with a pretty ribbon...enjoy
