I'm always putting together cool projects, and lately, I've been using a lot of cardboard. It occurred to me a couple hours ago that I was thirsty, and I didn't want to set my drink down in fear of the condensation getting on any of my works, so I decided to build a cool coaster.
Step 1: Items You'll Need
- Packaging Tape
- Circular object that is the size you want for your coaster
- Sharpie (any writing utensil will work)
- X-ACTO Knife
- Magazine Page (with image you want on coaster)
- Box Cutter
Step 2: Base
Trace around the outside of the circle onto the cardboard. Now, use the X-ACTO to score the outside rim. Don't cut all the way through. Just enough so you have a "track" for the box cutter. Finally, use the box cutter to cut through the rim. Now you have a circle!
Pro Tip: Move slow. Never rush through cutting an art piece!
