I finally made COASTERS

I had some of the glossy white tiles left from a tiling project so I wanted to make some coasters. I like these for coasters, because they are a little bigger than regular coasters and will fit a wider bottom cup or glass, like a stemmed glass.
I chose the scrapbook paper I wanted to use. I have this green in my family room, so I thought it would be perfect.  I used a tile to make a template and cut out 6 of them.
I then put a layer of Mod Podge on the tiles and placed the papers on each one. I had to let it dry really good before going on to the next step.

Here is where I added a layer of Mod Podge on the tops of the papers once it was dry on the bottom. I did this two more times, for a total of three times.  You really can't see the lines, but if you hold them in the light, you can see some lines, but they are not cloudy, they are clear and kind of adds some texture. 

My finished products.  I am really pleased with them. Next I want to try some with Christmas napkins. I saw a tutorial on Pinterest with Santa napkins.  What a great gift idea.
Here is the link to the original Pinterest Pin I found them on.

Teacher Gift Card Tree

I had an idea of making my daughter's Homeroom Teacher a gift card tree. I had made one a few years back for a raffle and it was so nice. So, I found the clay pot idea on Pinterest and decided to put my own spin on it.  It was easy and fun.
