Easy Gift Idea

>> Monday, August 2, 2010

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

Easy Peasy

Great idea!! My mother in law made some of these for me, but she cut out pictures of me and hubby and somehow sealed them onto the top of the coasters. I may do this for Xmas this year. Thanks! =)
