My boyfriend made himself a poker table and needed something to protect it from drinks, so I made him some poker coasters.
For each one I stuck two playing cards to a sheet of card, then drew around a coaster and cut out the circle. I put clear sticky back plastic (contact paper if you're american, i think) on top and stuck some black felt on the bottoms so they don't slip.
I hope you like them Smiley

VERY cool!  If I didn't already have way too many coasters floating around my house I'd be making some right now!

Those are great! Not only are they an incredibly clever solution to your boyfriend's problem, but they look awesome enough to go on a regular coffee table! I love them!

PERFECT!  My brother is moving into an apartment this year and he's addicted to gambling.  (Not like that's a good thing, he's academic probation because of it...)

But what a fitting housewarming gift!  I have been racking my brain to think of a deck of card related craft to do for him that's fairly cheap and fairly quick.  So thank you thank you thank you!

Now I know what to do with all the dead decks of cards I have.  The husband constantly shuffles them while waiting for things to load on the computer and they slowly get the ink rubbed off.  Not to mention that he drops them and loses them under the desk.  I love it!  Great idea!

Is that a felt poker table?  It looks like it is.  We have a not quite smooth wood one.  I'm wondering if backing the coasters with cork would be better for that surface.  The felt may slide on the wood.  Of course, I could just recover the table in felt like he's been asking me too. Smiley

It's a great idea for when you lose a few cards from a pack (which i regularly do so it's great for me) THANX X X X

I'm afraid that it isn't a felt poker table! When I built it I found that felt was too expensive to cover a large area so I had to improvise. The covering is actually off a roll of "grass" that you can get for model railways, most model shops should stock it, at least in the UK. But it has the same look and feel as felt and the coasters look great on it! Cheesy
