Catholic Christmas Gifts - Christmas Coasters

Don't throw away all those Christmas cards you are receiving, turn them into a present!

I received this set of Christmas coasters from a co-worker of mine a few years back and I thought they were so cleaver.

Sorry no photo tutorial on this one, but I'll still explain:

You will need:

Old or new Christmas cards
Cork board tiles or sheets
Acrylic varnish
Paint or foam brush
Scissors or exacto knife

Step 1: Cut our circles from your cork board and cards. Using a cup or bowl as a stencil helps form a perfect circle.

Step 2: Glue the picture onto the cork board with the acrylic varnish, let dry.

Step 3: Paint a layer of acrylic varnish on top of the picture to make the coaster waterproof. Once dry add a second layer.

That's it!
