Stamped Tile Coasters

These TILE COASTERS make wonderful gifts
- easy, classy and personalized.
These were made as Christmas gifts for our neighbors.
I also plan to make some as gifts for a few upcoming weddings.

Used the Friendship and The Works alphabets

To make them,

1) Start out with tumbled marble tiles (Home Depot and Lowes carry them - you get a box of 9 tiles for $5.)

2)Wipe them down with a damp cloth - coming out of the box they are very dusty.

3) Use StazOn brown ink to stamp the names with alphabet stamps. (It is best to practice first on a 4x4 piece of paper). Using Close To My Heart's clear acrylic stamps allows you to see exactly where you are stamping and you can place the entire name onto one block, so stamping multiple times is very easy.

4) Place adhesive backed felt circles on the underside corners of your tiles.

The box was purchased from Dollar General - it had a big poinsetta on the top of it. I just made a matching cover piece for the top that I had embossed with Cocoa embossing powder and double matted with Garden Green and Ponderosa Pine Cardstock.
