Cool Coasters

About: I love cute stuff!

Hi Everybody! This is my first Instructable - coasters wich I made and think are pretty cool. I'm giving this to someone I  know and came up with this idea a few days ago. So comment !

Step 1: Materials

 The fist step is to gather all your materials.
      -foam paint brush
      -cardboard(or pre-made foam ones)
      -Map or paper of choice

Step 2: Cut Cardboard

If your using corks or someting simular then skip this step .

    Your going to need to divide your cardboard sheet into equal squares.To make sure you have the right size use a biggest cup you use reguraly to get the best size.
   You need to cut them after you are done start cutting them out (dont worry about any lines drawn)

Step 3: Make the Circle

  Skip this step if you are not usung cardboard.

    For this step follow the dotted lines on where to cut how it should look like.
     Scroll over the pictures for more info.

Step 4: Glue and Cut

- Your going to have to make a watery glue mixture for this step to make the glue spread.
 - After that then you should cut out a few squares of your paper material.
 -Then star spreading your glue mixture onto the cardboard(or coaster).
 -Then put the paper on it and wait until its dry
 -Flip them  over and make sure they stay and put extra glue if you need it.

Step 5: Trim

  This last step is very easy because all you have to do is .....TRIM!

 Flip the coastes upside down so you can see both the extra paper and the coaster.
    - Start cutting around it.
          -If you are using cardboard then cut off some points jst in case you find any.

   Hope you enjoy your Map coaster ! :)

    Cool idea!
    Maybe leave them as squares, that way you can arrange them into a proper map when they are not in use?

    Thats a great Idea! I'll remember that next time I make coasters. I'm thinking about making one that turns out to be a giant movie poster .:-)
