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!!

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.
