Makin' My List

I've been making my list and checking it twice.
And it is much bigger than my budget.
So it was time to get creative.

I decided to make these fun coasters.

It is just rough bath tile. Stamped with a permanent ink called Stayzon. This will keep the design from washing away when the cups sweat.
Then add a few bumper pads to protect the table.
The possibilities are endless. A name. A monogram. A verse.

I'm thinking teachers, sunday school teachers, family, friends. Yes, the list is long, but in one afternoon, I knocked out 8 sets of 4 coasters.

Thank YOU sweet friend!! They are beautiful, but not as beautiful as the sweet heart the Lord gave you- thank you for the beautiful gift and the letter that made me tear up! I am thankful for you!!

I love this idea! I was thinking the same thing. I bought my stamps the other day (1/2 off at Hobby Lobby!) But I really like the look of yours too. Where did you get them? And the Stayzon too? I appreciate your help. I am new to stamping, but thought these would be a wonderful gift & inexpensive also.

Blessings.

So now I know what my Close To My Heart stamps were used for! And even my idea got hijacked! But for a really good purpose & for my favorite gal. They turned out so cute! A gift anyone would love to receive.
Love,
Mom

I love these and have tried making several of them. Pretty easy. Did you srpay yours with a protective coating of lacquer?

Thanks!

I did not lacquer them... the Stayz-on seems to be enough
