DIY Hand Stamped Coasters
- 4 x 4 tiles (I used a tumbled marble) [make sure to get several more than the total number you need since inevitably several will go horribly wrong]
- StazOn Stamping Ink (this is a permanent stamping ink)
- Self Adhesive Felt
- Sealer (I used a matte finish poly spray)
- Also need cookie sheets and an oven
Step 7. Fill in any gaps/spaces in the image on the tile with permanent marker of the same color. A black sharped works great with the black ink.
Step 8. Let ink dry for at least 10 minutes, then place tiles onto a cookie sheet and bake in oven preheated to 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes
Step 9. Let tiles cool completely
Step 10. Spray with sealer and let dry completely. I did at least 2-3 coats letting the tiles dry completely between coats. It only takes about 15 minutes for each coat to dry. After applying the last coat, though, I let the tiles dry for at least an hour.
Step 11. Place pieces of self adhesive felt to the bottom of the tile. I cut these in advance to speed this step. Each piece is about 1/4 inch square. This step is to ensure that if the bottom of the tile is at all rough, it won't scratch your table tops.
Step 12. Tie coasters together with ribbon for gift giving.
This is a relatively quick and inexpensive project that can be used for gifts for all kinds of occasions like house warmings, hostess gifts or even just because.
