We have a box of 4 X 4 tumbled Travertine tiles in the garage left over from our kitchen back-splash project. I've been saving them because I knew I wanted to make some tile coaster gift sets.
I've seen tile coasters made in all different ways, but I decided to just do what seemed easiest to me. I already had all of the supplies on hand and I thought these would blend easily into any decor.
- 4 x 4 natural stone tiles, tumbled would be best since the edges will be soft and rounded. The tiles I used sell for 22 cents a piece an our local Floor and Decor.
- Permanent stamp ink, I used StazOn.
- Modge Podge or a sealer made for natural stone. (I used a stone sealer leftover from our tile project.)
- Felt or rubber bumpers
- Pretty Ribbon
1. Clean the tiles with a damp paper towel, and let dry completely.
2. Ink up your stamp and press firmly to the tile. (I used this French Script wooden stamp.)
I did a two layer stamped image, so if you do this too, make sure the ink is dry on the first image and repeat the process. The StazOn ink only takes a few seconds to dry. I really love the clear stamps for stuff like this. I was able to play around until I found just the right placement.
3. Once the ink is dry, apply your chosen sealer by following the product's directions. I just dabbed the stone sealer on with a paper towel, waited 15 minutes and added another coat.
4. Add the felt or rubber bumpers to the bottom of the tile.
5. Dress up the tiles with a pretty ribbon and gift tag, and you're done!
