Fun Frugal Christmas Gift- Personalized Coasters

 Personalized Coasters
I've been trying to come up with a thrifty fun gift from the girls.  I saw an idea to make your own coasters here and decided to make it a little more personal.  Instead of using scrapbook paper I used illustrations, letters, and numbers made by Little Sweets as well as photographs of the girls and our family.  Here's how they turned out.

Here is how I made them.
  1.   I found photographs I wanted to use on the coasters and printed them from the computer.
  2. I had Little Sweets draw a picture, write her name, and write the year on a piece of paper.  Then I copied it on our color printer so I could use the same picture, name, and year for multiple coasters. 
  3. I pasted the pictures onto white tiles I bought at Lowe's for 33 cents a piece.
  4. After the pictures dried I painted over the coasters with mod podge.  ( The coasters in the picture don't have the mod podge coat yet because I still need to add the girls names and I don't use their names on my blog.)
  5. On the back of the coasters add felt circle pads. 
This was and easy, inexpensive project.
