On the Fourth Day of Christmas...

I'm giving some really cool Medallion Coasters!





I can not tell you haw FABULOUS these are in person! They are the marble unfinished tumble tiles from Lowes or Home Depot. they come in a box of 12 for about $5 (I think)

I stamped each tile with the Medallion stamp in Chocolate Chip craft ink. My pad was VERY juicy so these were fabulous since the image came out so dark & rich! re-ink your pad if its slightly dry! Bake for 10 minutes at 350.

Since these tiles are so dusty I spray mine (front & back) with a matte sealer from the craft store. A very light mist to control the dust. and don't forget the felt pads for the back!

Since these are so heavy I decided to put them in this cute bucket ( from the $1 spot at Target a few months back) I added felt feet to the bucket as well since its great storage/display for the coasters in someones home! the panel on the front of the bucket is a Monogram label- I think it needed to be a little personalized!

Have Fun making yours!!!!!

ETA: Spray after baking!

Jill, I love - love the coasters, off to Lowes tomorrow, I was suprised to learn you put them in the oven. do you spray after the oven or before. Jill I thank you for all the wonderful ideas you share with us. Hapiness, Carol g.

Hi Jill,

These look wonderful and easy to make. I am wondering if it makes a difference if a gas or electric oven is used for baking? Should the time be adjusted?
