Gift Idea: Stamped Tile Coasters

Christmas is almost here!  I have been busy working on a few handmade gifts for our neighbors, friends and family.

These Stamped Tile Coasters are an easy project that takes less than 20 minutes from start to finish

We have a box of 4 X 4 tumbled Travertine tiles in the garage left over from our kitchen back-splash project.  I have been saving them because I knew I wanted to make some tile coaster gift sets.


I have 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 in to any decor.


Supplies needed
-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.
-Stamps
-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


Here is what to do:

First clean the tiles with a damp paper towel, and let dry completely.

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.


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.


Add the felt or rubber bumpers to the bottom of the tile.





Add a pretty ribbon and a gift tag and you are done!
