Tumbled Marble Coasters


This is a throw back to an old homemade gift I made before I started my blog. I had such a blast last week at DIY Day over at A Soft Place to Land, so I rummaged something up so I wouldn't be left out :) (I'm linked up so go check out all of the AMAZING DIY projects)

I don't have any process pictures but here is the scoop.

1. Buy a box of tumbled marble tiles from Lowe's (in the flooring section) for under $5 for 9 tiles.
2. Clean them off really good with a wet rag; let dry completely
3. Pick your stamp that you want to use
4. Use a high quality PERMANENT/WATERPROOF ink pad
5. Stamp the tile; let dry (some people put them in a warm oven to help set, but either way works)
6. Put cork/felt feet on the bottom.
7. When ink is dry, spray with clear sealant.

Ta-dah, that's it! These are easily personalized, and make a great little gift!
** This is the sealant I use. I think I got it at Michael's if I recall correctly.

  1. Love this. Very nice gift to be able to do inespensivley.
    The spray sealant you talked about, can I buy that at Hobby Lobby or Michaels?

  2. Super cute. That would have been perfect for my Church silent auction basket that I finished up (and posted on ASPTL) this week! Dang.

  7. Hiya! Quick question that's completely off

    topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when

    viewing from my iphone 4. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that

    might be able to resolve this problem. If you have any suggestions,
    please share.

    Thanks!

  11. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year

    old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
    put the shell to her ear and

    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is

    totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  30. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the
    page layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content

    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only
    having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space
    it out better?

    And I actually do have a couple of questions
    for you if it's allright. Is it just me or does it appear like a few of these responses come across as if they are written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at other sites, I'd like to follow anything new you have to post.
