Upcycled coasters

The drinks coasters were looking a bit sad, after years of (over) use they needed replacing or refreshing…

I was feeling guilty after a craft supplies binge so this is a no spend craft session

Supplies: modpodge decoupage glue and a strip of wallpaper from the wrapping box (I buy the remnant rolls from time to time) plus some gold pigment ink from my stamping box

method: cut wallpaper to just a bit bigger than needed. Matt modpodge on paper and coaster then rub carefully on, when nearly dry turn coaster over and trim excess paper with a scalpel, care round the corners. Rub the ink pad around the edge of the coaster top to blend it in with the gilt sides. Let ink dry then seal with gloss modpodge.

cheers!
