I was inspired by these colorful rice creations to make my own colorful rice coasters.  There are endless crafts to make with this colorful rice.  Dana uses vinyl fabric to make her crafts and I decided to try acrylic.

Take this idea and make it your own!

Step 1: Materials

Dying Rice:
1. White Rice
2. Food Coloring
3. Bowl
4. Spoon
5. Wax Paper
6. Water

Acrylic Coaster
1. 5"x10"X1/8" of acrylic
2. 5"x5"X1/4" of acrylic
2. Laser Cutter
3. Acrylic Glue
4. Acrylic Glue Applicator
5. Rubber Gloves
**There are many ways you can rework this project w/o using the laser cutter, get creative : )

Finally, a suitable use for rice!
