I made these coasters for the Pin-up Girls Swap, and absolutely love them because a) they were really easy to make and b) you can pretty much use any picture you want (including photos - which would make an awesome gift!!)

These are the coasters I made for the swap:


These are the coasters I made for myself (and ended up giving to my mum):


This is the cover of the box for the first set of coasters (hooray for silly puns!!):


To make your own set of coasters, grab a set of existing coasters - I used cork-backed ones, some clear duraseal (clear sticky-backed book-covering), double-sided sticky tape and some pictures.

Cover the pictures with duraseal, cover the backs with double-sided sticky tape, cut the pictures out the same shape as the coasters, then stick them on the coasters.

To clean the coasters - wipe them with a damp cloth. DO NOT immerse them in water or they will probably fall apart, and do not put anything really hot on them or the duraseal might melt.

Click here for my tutorial.

Happy crafting!!

do you wrap the duraseal around the edge & back of the coaster?

I just googled them, resized them, then printed them off. They're a little grainer and more washed out than magazine pictures are, but they still look pretty good.

This is the best idea ever, so I decided to make some too  Grin. Only thing is that I was using a bad kind of glue, so I totally messed up one so I had to redo that..

Anyway here's the result  Grin:

I cant take credit for finding this fabulous site, another individual posted it here on craftster, so sorry for not remembering who or where. 
http://www.thepinupfiles.com/index2.html

The pics are organized by artist, and are listed as 'classic' and 'contemporary,'  of course these coasters are the 'classic' style (which i just adore by the way!).  I'm sure you could find hundreds of other sites by just googling 'pin-up girls' or 'classic pin-up girls' but this site is a great place to start  ~beth

no problem.... its a fabulous site and so are your coasters!  I'm inspired to make some for myself and a friend.  I'm trying to decide on what material to use though.  premade coasters, cork board, glass or tiles (like bathroom tiles)... decisions, decisions  ~beth

Yes I printed them out on normal plain printer paper, and I'm pretty sure I've seen some coasters on here that are modge-podged, so I don't see why you couldn't use that instead.

I can't remember exactly, but it was probably just something like "Pin-up girls".
I used pictures from this site too: http://www.212.net/pinup/

probably because of the printer/ink used, but i tried to use mod podge on some pictures i printed once ( i wanted to make stickers for a swap ) but it only ended up smearing the ink all over the page Sad beware of crap paper/ink/printers!

If you use mod-podge, be sure to use some kind of lacquer/sealant at the end. I used a spray lacquer on a mod-podged paper table top recon, and haven't had any problems yet.
