Making coasters with Your Scrap Papers

I really had a lot of fun making this project. Using my leftover Picture My Life cards, Feels Like Home papers and some sticker complements or elements cut from the 12 x 12 papers from Feels Like Home paper, I cut 4 x 4 and 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 pieces and used the Mod Podge liberally on the tile and paper. As it dries the air bubbles need to be rubbed out from the middle out. I added Mod Podge to the cork and glued that onto the back for easy of washing. I used a sponge applicator but a brush could be used.

The Feels Like Home papers are no longer available but any papers you like can be used in this project.



Supplies:
Papers Picture My Life Cards Thin Cuts-Stitched Square Frames

Other supplies:
Mod Podge
Cork
Sponge applicator
White ceramic tiles

Have Fun with this easy project!!
