DIY Coasters

I'm repurposing regular cardboard beverage
 coasters with a little paper and glue.
I want to use them on the table under
 the wine glasses.
I started out with these 'restaurant'
coasters. I had a a good size stack of them.
 I traced them onto wrapping paper.
 Then I just cut and glued them on 
using  Mod Podge.
 I weighed them down with a few heavy
encyclopedias to keep them flattened.
I then applied 2 coats of Mod Podge
 to the top and let that dry a overnight.
I wanted to do these right away using
 the materials I had on hand.  I could make 
a gazillion of them. 
I spotted this easy craft project on
  French Country Cottage
They would be 'gift-worthy' if I used
 thicker cork tiles and then cut them to
coaster size to a 4" square or circle.  
The next time I'm at the home store,
 I'll pick up some cork.
Think of the possibilities!
