I've seen several sets of really cute coasters made from tiles, and I finally decided to try it.  Here's mine:



They're 4 and 1/4 inches square, and here's how I made them: tiles from Home Depot (only 16 cents each!) scrapbook paper cut to size, Mod Podge to attach it and coat it, then several coats of Exterior/Interior varnish, and a square of cork hot glued underneath. 

The reason they have a bit of texture is that I used a foam roller to apply the Mod Podge and the varnish, and that's just what it does.  I like it though, and so far they're standing up to my hot coffee mug pretty darn well!

The texture is great. It might help stop everything slipping about, too!
Love these.

Thanks! Heh, actually, the roller isn't supposed to be textured, it's just that whenever I use any sort of roller with Mod Podge it makes teensy bubbles like that. *shrug*

I love your coasters & I made some as well, cute margarita prints. Anyway, when I spread the decoupage glue, all the ink rubbed off, leaving a pinkish cast to the finished coaster. It was cute so I left it, but how can I get that to stop, does anyone know? Thanks for the help!

And again....lOVE the paper you chose for those coasters
