I decided to make coasters for gifts this year out of tiles. I bought the super inexpensive, ceramic, off white tiles at a local hardware store and decoupaged scrapbook paper on them as well as their last initial. I ended by sealing them so that the water won't ruin the paper...fingers crossed on that one. I like the way they turned out and they really were so easy.
Then I received a gift from my sweet friend, Lisa and great minds think a like. She made me coasters, which was great because I didn't get around to making my own set. And the greatest thing about crafting is the same idea turns out so differently, and I think hers turned out way better...she got a fancier tile and then stamped them. They look like she bought them. Thanks, Lisa. I always need coasters. I don't know why mine always are disappearing and getting chipped or cracked. Now I am all set.


  1. I still am amazed at how this happened! Of all the things. I love the ones you made for me and you were FAR too kind about how mine turned out. I was planning on monograms, too, but couldn't find a letter stamp or stencil that I liked enough, so I went with the fleur de lis. I am glad you like them!

    Merry Christmas!
