These easy, personalized coasters make the perfect last-minute (handmade!) gift for anyone on your list. With a few simple, easy to find supplies, you can create unique coaster sets in one afternoon.
All it takes it some cork (pre-cut coasters make the job easy), Mod-Podge or white glue, and some interesting paper to cover them with. You could even print out personal photos to make them a truly one-of-a-kind gift.
Step 1: Materials
Assemble your materials:
- Interesting paper - I used some scrapbooking paper and an artist's map of San Francisco
- X-acto knife or scissors
- Cork coasters
- Mod Podge - an all-in-one glue, sealer and finish, found in craft shops and some sewing stores, comes in gloss or matte finish (white glue will also work, and might I recommend some sort of shellac for a nice, glossy finish?)
- Craft paint brush
