I'm making a ton for family and friends for Christmas (after buying a house, it is a cheap Christmas this year!)

Sunflower coasters for my aunt



You can't see the glitter detail in it, but I lined the flowers and a few things in the paper with my glitter pens Smiley

Cape Cod coasters for my grandparents



They live on Cape Cod and they love it there. So I found some old maps of my father's and cut out Cape Cod and made them into coasters.

I'm loving these bathroom tile coasters! They are so easy and cheap to make (only $ .16 at Home Depot!)

How are you sealing them? If you don't seal them right then it won't work Modge Podge won't do the trick!
They look great, I just want to make sure they are made to stay looking great!

Well, I'm using Modge Podge on the paper, but then I'm taking them into the dungeon (basement) and giving them 4-5 coats of Krylon Triple Thick sealer.

But thank you...I've learned my lesson with a few with Modge Podge...it prompted me to get a good spray sealer to use afterwards.
