Stamped Tumbled Tile Coasters


Here's a very simple project that makes a much appreciated gift.  One year I made these for just about everybody for Christmas, and they were a big hit. (Well, anyway, everyone seemed to like them... )

You will need:
Tumbled tiles (unglazed)
Rubber stamps
Stazon ink pad
Sharpie markers (optional)
Spray acrylic sealer
Cork coasters or felt

Here's what to do:

1. Take a tumbled tile (very inexpensive at Home Depot, Lowes, etc.) and stamp with Stazon ink. Stazon is a permanent ink that comes in a lot of different colors.   I used colored Stazon ink, but you could use black Stazon, and then color in the image with a Sharpie permanent marker.  I like the simplicity of just the colored Stazon for these leaves, (and I've never tried the Sharpies...)

2. After stamping, many people recommend that you heat set the ink by placing the coaster in a 350 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes.

3. Next, spray the tile with a spray acrylic sealer in matte. (Mine was from Plaid, but there are other brands.)

4. Add some felt or a cork coaster to the bottom of the tile to finish it off.

I tied together sets of 4 with organza ribbon for gifts.

You can really get creative with this. Break out the quote stamps, verses, etc. and make a coordinated set. Or maybe some Christmas coasters. The fall leaves would be a nice hostess gift at Thanksgiving.

Have fun, and let me know how it goes!

  15. Stopping by again to tell you I am linking up to this great post in my post for tomorrow. You solved my problem in my quest to make coasters. Tumbled not ceramic- had been working with ceramic all week and it was an epic fail.

  17. Pam. I love these. I am going to pin the image. And the soccer cupcake wasn't my favorite either (personally love the monkeys!) though it took forever and I was proud of my non-artsy self for making soccer balls on cupcakes! Let me know when you are not too busy and would like to be a mentor mom.
