GUEST POST: postcard coaster DIY.
Yesterday I spent my time clearing out my spare room (well overtime it has turned from the spare room into the room of junk/denial). I was delighted to find little tokens of nostalgia from my travels over the years, the only problem being I don't really know what to do with them all. Well thankfully, the lovely Elizabeth from Life of Lovely has got a cute project for us this weekend which might be the perfect solution...
Whenever I go on trips, I love bringing back postcards as souvenirs. A great way to do something useful with these souvenirs is to make them into coasters that you can use and enjoy.
For supplies you'll need: Modpodge, postcards, old coasters, a pencil, a paintbrush, scissors and a clear enamel spray (not pictured)
Step One: Trace the outline of your coasters on the front of the postcard.
Step Two: Cut the postcard along the lines you traced.
Step Three: Apply a layer of modpodge directly on the coaster. Then place the postcard cut-out over the coaster.
Step Four: Apply a topcoat of modpodge over the coaster. Don't worry, it will dry clear.
Step Five: Allow the coasters to dry, and then, seal with a clear enamel topcoat. Once dry, your coasters are ready to use.
