Another project to use up the leftovers from my book project/wall art!
Note – I am not going into detail about all the steps here. For full detailed instructions on making coasters, including troubleshooting info, visit my map coaster tutorial.
I know the best way to make coasters and I had all sorts of book pieces lying around. First up – some Harry Potter coasters for my sister-in-law. I love Harry Potter, but they really love Harry Potter over at their house. My niece got a Harry Potter-themed room when she was born!
The steps here are exactly the same as I followed when I made the map coasters. I took the leftover Harry Potter pages and picked eight favorites. I still have a bunch of coasters that I got at the dollar bin at Michaels.
I cut out circles and Mod Podged them to the coasters. I used a couple layers of Hard Coat Mod Podge to seal them. Guess what I discovered? When you seal book pages with Mod Podge there are no streaks! These turned out prettier than my map coasters!
I sprayed them with my clear spray paint to seal and totally waterproof them. After they dried, I added a pretty ribbon and wrapped them up. Then I wondered if I needed more coasters at home because these were seriously cool.
