Summary:

A great gift idea that makes use of recycled materials found around the home.

What You Need:
What You Do:

  1. Place a lid over top of a greeting card, magazine page or piece of fabric and trace around the lid with a pencil.

  2. Cut out the shape you just traced and glue it to the lid. Repeat on as many lids as you like.

  3. Another option is to cut out many tiny pieces of greeting cards, fabric or magazine pages and glue them onto the lid the way you would if you were making a collage.

  4. Finally, once the glue has dried, you have to seal the coasters with a water-based sealers to protect them from moisture.
