Time Well Spent Coasters

I love making tile coasters. Perhaps because they are so simple, but cute? They are inexpensive, yet very personable. And fun to create!

All you need to do it buy a few 4"x 4" Bottochino tiles (be sure they are unglazed) at your local Home Depot, Lowe's, Floor & Decor, or any store that carries tiles. Simply wipe the tiles with a damp cloth to remove the white dust from the tiles.

Then stamp your main image using Staz-On ink. You can use line images if you want to color them in, or solid images (like the horses below) if you want a solid color. Staz-On comes in many colors, but I used black here.

Then color your images in using Sharpie markers. You can use any permanent marker, but I prefer the Sharpies - especially because they come in so many colors!

The best part? No need to seal the coasters. They are ready to use! Perfect for quick party favors or last minute gifts!

These were actually made for my Aunt Erika for Christmas! I used the Time Well Spent level 3 Hostess set for these coasters. The only way for you to get these stamps is to have a qualifying workshop and earn benefits for a level 3 set. There are so many great Hostess sets in the new catalog! What? You don't have your new catalog yet? Contact me today to find out how to get your own copy!!
