DIY Photo coasters

What you'll need:

4" x 4" Tumbled Tile (Wipe down with a damp cloth to remove any dust and let dry completely)
Tissue Paper
Mod Podge
Foam brush
4” x 4” Cork
Permanent glue
Acrylic Sealer


Step 1
Cut a piece of tissue paper and tape it to a regular sheet of paper. (This way it will feed through the printer)

Step 2
Print picture (wallet size) on tissue paper and trim to fit tile.

Step 3
Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to tile.

Step 4
Place picture on the tile.

Step 5
Apply another thin coat of Mod Podge over picture and then let dry.

Step 6
After letting the Mod Podge™ dry completely, spray with acrylic spray, following directions on can.

Step 7
After tile is completely dry, turn it over and apply permanent glue to one side of the cork square.

Step 8
Attach cork glue side down to the back of the tile and press down firmly.

Step 9
Let the glue dry and enjoy your coaster!

On a side note I printed (also on tissue paper) the word "Happiness" and placed it at bottom of the horizontal picture and on the side of the vertical ones.

L'amor che move il sole e l'altre stelle"
"The love that moves the sun and the other stars"
