A little Christmas something

My family has come from the tradtion of getting everyone something for Christmas to the sad reality of drawing names, but I think we all still like to get each other a little something.  I thought this year coaster would be the perfect gift to give.  Fun to make!  Fun to give! 

Here's what you need:
4x4 tiles from lowes or home depot I paid 34cents a piece
Matte Modge Podge
Sponge for application
Glue Gun
Felt to attach to the back of the tile
Pictures for the project, doesn't have to be on photo paper

Pictures for the coasters

Modge Podge Matte
Apply a thin coat of modge podge to coasters

Apply a thin coat of modge podge over picture and let dry before you apply 2nd coat

               After modge podge drys apply clear acrylic matte spray onto the coasters and allow to dry.

                                  add felt to the back so they won't scratch or slide  on any surface

I hope my family enjoys them.  If you are my family and you've seen this just ignore it.  I just couldn't go without sharing this cost friendly yet sentimental gift with everyone.
