Decorative Coasters with Scrapbook Paper DIY

January 3, 2012 6 By EngineerMommy

So I have a ton of pretty scrapbook paper and I use coasters everyday. So I thought to myself, “Why can’t I prettify one of those generic glass coasters I got as a wedding favor?” I went to my scrapbooking corner, started looking at my stash and began brainstorming designs and layouts. Here is how I used some scrapbook paper and embelishments to make decorative coasters.

Decorative Coasters DIY

  1. Take an old coaster that you want to spruce up. I started with an square glass one.
  2. Select the scrapbook paper you want to use. Turn it over and trace the outline of the coaster on the paper. Cut it out.
  3. Brush some Mod Podge all over the coaster and place your paper on top. Brush some more Mod Podge on top of the paper, taking care to smooth the edges down.
  4. Collect any other flat embelishments and add those to the coaster as well. I used thin ribbon and sticker decals. Brush a final layer of Mod Podge all over the top of the coaster.

Make a few of these and give some away as little gifts!
