Hello all! We are continuing our Fall journey though September with orange, brown, gold and black stock. I have been all about decoupage lately and was dying to share a project that would incorporate some Modge Podge. I thought with the current theme and time of year, custom coasters would be a great idea to try. You can always hand these out as gifts, or use them for the holidays. They are sure fire conversation starters and a chance to show off your D.I.Y. chops.
What you’ll need:
- Modge Podge (I like the matte finish, but it comes in gloss also)
- Sponge brush
- Cut Card Stock paper (see below)
- Shape punches
- Cork Coasters (usually sold in packs of 4)
- Exacto Blade
- Round corner punch tool
Step 1. Apply Modge Podge to one of your coasters and add paper.
|Use liberally to simply affix the paper to the coaster.|
Step 2. Punch paper and arrange creatively on top of each coaster. Make sure you use thin coats when coating and allow 15-20 minutes drying time between coats!
|These should last you a long time, or, along with a nice note, this is one of the nicest gifts to give or receive!|
