I'm trying to make my boyfriend some coasters, except I don't know how - hoping someone can help?

I have these cork coasters that I'm trying to glue some photos on. But I figure to be useful as coasters, I'll need to seal them pretty well, so the paper doesn't get soaked through. Problem is, I have not the slightest idea what product to use.

Help?

I checked out that site and it looks like she's showing how to paint a glass coaster using a template and then to put felt on the back of it.

It sounds like what you want is to use a sealant on the top of the pictures.  You're using cork coasters, right?  Let me see if I can find something else for you.

clear contact paper?

like the kind used to line drawers and make stencils, just use a small squeegee/the back of a knife to get the bubbles out.
