Tile Coasters with a Quilted DSP Pattern

I have a good friend who is an avid quilter and I made these tile coasters for her birthday. 



Tile coasters are very easy to make, they just are not a quick project.  So as long as you make them several days ahead they're an impressive easy gift.  And this particular pattern was a great way to use up some DSP scraps.

Materials:
  • 4" square tiles (I get mine at my local Habitat for Humanity Re-Store)
  • ModPodge and foam brush
  • Paper decoration
Step by step instructions are super easy
  1. make your focal point on paper
  2. be sure the tiles are clean and dry
  3. cover both the tile and the back of the paper with a thin layer of Modpodge 
  4. on the dry upper surface of the paper start at the center and work to the edges to remove all the bubbles from under the paper
  5. then brush a thin layer of modpodge over the top being sure to seal the edges
  6. allow to dry and repeat as many layers as you feel looks good (I usually add 2-3 more layers of ModPodge)
  7. Seal with an acrylic spray sealer (to protect from condensation from a cold glass)
  8. Adhere felt furniture feet on the bottom to each corner - to protect furniture from the tile
Voila done.

I also like to make a matching pretty package to deliver the gift.
