Friday Freebie - Stampin' Up Designer Series Paper Coasters Tutorial





Happy Friday Everyone! As promised, here is my Friday Freebie Tutorial on how to make the Designer Series Paper Coasters I highlighted on Thursday. These make a wonderful gift and like the bookmarks from last week, can become quite addicting! Please send me a picture or a link when you create yours!

You will need: a sheet of Designer Series Paper and tiles from the local home improvement store


You will also need: a foam brush, Decoupage Adhesive, Felt Pads and Stampin' Up Crystal Effects



1. Cut your Designer Series Paper into 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" squares.



2. Use Decoupage Adhesive and the Foam Brush to completely cover each of the tiles.



3. Add the Designer Series Paper to the top of each tile and press down. (Tip: I used a bone folder to completely press each of the edges to make sure they would not come up.)



4. Add a nickel size drop of Crystal Effects to the top of each tile and completely cover with the foam brush.
(Tip: To give the tiles a little bit of texture, I brushed the Crystal Effects in two different directions.)



5. You now have a completed coaster. Just set it aside so it can dry completely.



6. After the coasters are dry, add Felt Pads to the bottom of each.



7. You now a set of beautiful coasters.



8. Add ribbon and a tag to package as a gift.



Happy Stamping!

  2. I am so glad you like it Cherie! I actually made these on my dining room table. The smell of the decoupage wasn't that strong.
