More Coasters with Designer Series Paper

Yesterday, I posted pictures of tile coasters that I made by stamping on the images.  Here are the pictures of two of the sets I made using Designer Series Paper.  The possibilities are endless and once again, this is a very easy project to do, as long as you have patience waiting for your sealing layers to try.

To make these coasters I once again started by cleaning off the clear tiles.  I then decided what Designer Series Papers I wanted to use and cut them into 4 x 4 squares.  My first step to adhering the paper was to spread a thin layer of Mod Podge onto my tile and then addding my paper.  I then took my Brayer and rolled it over the tile to get out any air bubbles and adhere my paper to the tile.  While I let the Mod Podge set for a bit, I continued to do this step to about 12 more tiles. 
Next I went back over these now papered tiles with another layer of Mod Podge.  I let this set for about 30 minutes, and then went back again and gave it another coat.  I let all of my tiles set over night before adding my Clear Sealer.  I sprayed the tiles twice with the clear sealer, waiting about one hour in between.  After they were dry, I added my felt pads to the bottom and tied them up with ribbon.
So the tiles are really easy to make, they just take time because you need to let your layers dry in between.  The possibilities are endless.  Whether you are stamping them or adding paper to them, you can make coasters for any occasion.  Have fun experimenting!
