Love Coasters For Valentine’s Day
Plain ceramic coasters available at most craft stores
Black Stamp Pad
Old Book pages
Polycrylic (or another sealant)
Foam Brush (or two)
First, cut your book pages to a square slightly smaller than your coaster
Next, stamp out your quote or message. TIP: If you’re using the same size letters as I did, you’ll want your quote to be fairly short (I tried stamping out ‘and the greatest of these is love’ and I quickly ran out of room!). I also wanted these to look a bit imperfect, so I was fine with some of the corners of the rubber stamp showing around the letters:
Next, we’ll adhere the book page squares to the coasters. First, apply a layer of mod podge to coaster.
Next, place book page onto coaster, centering it quickly before it adheres completely. Then apply another layer of mod podge on top of book page. You can be fairly generous … it dries clear, I promise!
Wait for mod podge to dry (30 mins – 1 hour), then apply a layer of Polycrylic over entire coaster to create a waterproof seal (important since these will most likely get drips and spills on them (especially if they’re holding MY coffee cups … ha!).
Just wait for the Polycrylic to dry, and that’s all, folks!
Wrap ‘em up with some twine for gifting.
