recycled coasters

The possibilities are endless with this idea. Materials: recycled cardboard, scrap decorative paper, glue, paper glaze, cork. Begin with about an eighth inch thick piece of cardboard, cut into 4 inch squares. Then adhere the images you like on top, it could be image: photos, clip art, recycle a map, whatever theme you like, just make sure it is flat. Put a sealer of some kind on top: varnish, modge podge, paper glaze, or use a piece of glass. Be sure whatever you use will not discolor your image. I used paper glaze. Put cork on the bottom with a strong glue, so it will not scratch your furniture. Have fun and be creative.
