10 Handmade Gifts in 10 Days ~ Day 3!

Coasters! 

I had fun making these. I had purchased these "wood" coasters at Craft Warehouse when I first moved back here to Oregon. I had never been in a Craft Warehouse before, quite cool! That was just over 3 years ago. Some days feels like yesterday others feels like a lifetime ago.

Anyhow, as I have been going thru my scrapbook and crafting items the past 6 months or so and destashing i found several sets of them. I've had them sitting out on my desk, many times they've gotten buried under other projects. Then I fond them again just recently for probably the 100th time, but this time I had ideas! Simply because of the paper that I had been cleaning up from another project inspired me to make these. I made 3 sets and am still torn on what to do with the last 4th set.

I picked out my papers and trimmed then and corner rounded them. Then sanded the coasters. Painted both sides and the edges to match the papers. Then I adhered the papers to the coasters. Then I sprayed them with Lacquer from a (spray paint can)! Yes, they have it in a spray paint form now! how Sweet! So much easier than brushing on with a paint brush cleaning the brush in between each coat and worrying about the paint brush marks.
