DIY Monogrammed Coasters


In my quest to make holiday gifts this year, I came across this idea from The Domestic Notebook. Since it is a few years old, and she doesn't blog anymore, I figured I'd share it with you from here...because its fabulous...and cheap...and easy...Perfect!

You will need:


travertine or other natural stone 4x4 tiles
a large stamp
small letter stamps
permanent stamp ink
felt pads

Before I started stamping the tiles, I wiped them off with a damp rag and let them dry. This gets any dust off :) ...


Step 1:
using double stick tape, cover a part of the tile to put an initial

Step 2:
Ink the large stamp and apply to tile


Step 3:
Remove paper square



Step 4:
Apply initial stamp


Step 5:
Let dry

Step 6:
Wrap :)

These are wonderful! Because I used a permanent ink, there is no need to apply any protective coat. And the natural stone absorbs the "sweat" from the glasses. I added felt pads under all 4 corners to protect any surfaces from getting scratched.

I think these will be great with my Homemade Vanilla...Happy stamping and coaster making!!!

Seriously? Staz-on works that good? I just got a rubber stamp but there are so many ink pads to choose from :/ Now I know which one I want. These are so gorgeous. Great gift idea!
