Souvenir Coaster DIY

For those of you who missed my DIY guest post at Sweet Pea Sylvia's a while back, I'll be sharing it with you today. Here's how to make souvenir coasters out of all those postcards you buy while traveling.

Postcard Coaster Supplies
For supplies you'll need: Modpodge, postcards, old coasters, a pencil, a paintbrush, scissors and a clear enamel spray (not pictured)

Postcard Coaster Trace
Step One: Trace the outline of your coasters on the front of the postcard.

Postcard Coaster Cut
Step Two: Cut the postcard along the lines you traced.

Postcard Coaster First Coat
Step Three: Apply a layer of modpodge directly on the coaster.  Then place the postcard cut-out over the coaster.

Postcard Coaster Second Coat
Step Four:  Apply a topcoat of modpodge over the coaster.  Don't worry, it will dry clear.

Postcard Coaster Dry
Step Five:  Allow the coasters to dry, and then, seal with a clear enamel topcoat.  Once dry, your coasters are ready to use.
