Alright! My first instructable! So, a quick intro to what you're doing. You'll be using some basic utensils and items found around the house to put together a neat little coaster for your drink.

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

Again, some basics:

- 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)
- Cardboard
- Box Cutter
- Glue-stick
- Scissors
<p>Fun idea - the only issue I can see that could be detrimental to the life span of your coasters is that condensation might seep in between the tape pieces. Perhaps sealing the picture and the rest of the cardboard with a Modge Podge type layer might work better. I will take your idea to the high school where I work. Great project for the students. :-)</p>
Cool. I like it
<p>You could also use mod podge on top of the image to really bond it down and waterproof it, but nice job!</p>
Very cool. You can also keep the ones they give you when you go to a bar. Ahem. But yours are cuter.
Glad everyone likes them!
<p>Great, simple idea! Thanks!</p>
