Homemade Gifts are my favorite to give and to receive! These tile coasters are under 5 dollars to make a set of four and it just doesn't get any easier than this to make a quick Christmas gift!
Step 1~ Ink Cover-A-Card Chicken Wire CC155 with Stazon Jet Black. I like to leave some areas of the background lighter or even without ink for a more random or worn look.
Step 2~Stamp it off on scrap paper after inking. This gives you a lighter shade of black.
Step 3~ Ink a 4" x 4" tile face down on the Cover-A-Card Chicken Wire CC155. I found my tiles at the local carpet and tile store. Yup...super cheap!
Step 4~ Ink Hang In There F8726 (hands down, my all time favorite stamp!)with Jet Black Stazon and stamp over the Cover-A-Card Chicken Wire CC155.
Step 5~ Place your coasters on a cookie sheet.
Step 6~ Preheat to 350 degrees. Put cookie sheet with coasters in the oven and bake for 30 minutes and turn the oven off. I let the coasters cool down in the oven with the oven.
Step 7~ Once the tiles are cool, adhere felt, cork or rubber pads to the corners on the bottom of the coasters. I buy mine at the dollar store but you can by them at the hardware store too. (Sorry no photo).
Step 8~ Tie them up with some ribbon and gift away!!
