Modpodge Tile Coasters

For quite some time I was thinking of making something easy and fast...and MODPODGE was perfect answer to my question.
Had seen many variants of these tile coasters on Pinterest and had always wanted to try my hands on these.  
They’re cute, easy, and cheap.  My kind of craft project!
These are super fun to make and a great gift to give...I even made a gift box for these and my sister just loved her surprise gift. :)
Grab your tools and try these tile coasters..
You Will Need:
  • Ceramic Tiles (4x4)
  • Scrapbook Paper of your choice
  • Mod Podge and a Foam Brush/and flat brush ( do remember to wash your brush after use)
  • Spray Acrylic Sealer
  • Felt (any color) or cork/foam dots    
  • Any old visiting card,atm card (wondering where will this be used!! are not going shopping,,.!) 
Lets start....
1.  The first thing you’ll need to do is cut squares from the scrapbook paper that are just slightly smaller than the tiles.  One way to do this is to trace around the tiles and then cut just a little bit inside the lines.  Trim as needed to get the fit you want.
2.  Brush some Mod Podge onto the tile and then lay the square of scrapbook paper on it to adhere it to the tile.  Smooth it out with old visiting card/atm card as needed, making sure you get all the way to the edges. But use light pressure with the card or you will end up tearing the paper( i learnt the hard way)
3.  Next, brush a coat of Mod Podge over the paper, again making sure you get all the way to the edges.
4. Let your coasters set for several hours to dry.
5. To make sure your coasters will be waterproof, finish them off with a coat of spray acrylic sealer .
6. To keep the tiles coasters from scratching your furniture, you’ll want to put some felt on the back.  I used felt backing , you can also use cork sheets.Cut a square piece slightly smaller than your tile and stick it to the back. 
And that’s it!
