Hey! I want to share this easy project with you! I wanted to make some new coasters for myself as the ones we have are very light and when you have a sweaty cup sitting on it, it sticks to the cup when you lift it up! ANNOYING!!! So this is what I came up with.
I bought some 4x4 white ceramic tiles from Rona for about $.40/pce. I bought a kit of surface protectors [ cork, rubber and felt] to put under the tiles. The "real" size of these tiles were more like 4 1/4" x 4 1/4", so I cut my paper into 4x4 pieces. I used less then one 12x12 piece of paper for six coasters!
I used a matte medium by Ranger to adhere the paper to the tile in THIN coats of the glue so the paper doesn't pucker and get glue trapped underneath. I then applied 2 more coats of the matte medium on top of the paper, drying between each coat.
To seal off the tiles I sprayed 2-3 coats of a matte moisture proof protector on top, following the directions on the can. Then enjoy! Its as simple as that! Let me know if you give it a try! Thanks for stopping by!
