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... )

Tumbled tiles (unglazed) -  I got mine at a home improvement store.
Rubber stamps
Stazon ink pad(s)
Cork coasters or felt (for the bottom)

Here's what to do:

1. Take an unglazed 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.

2. After stamping, many people recommend that you heat set the ink by placing the coaster in a 300-350 degree oven for about 10-15 minutes.

3.  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!


This does not show any tiles, but I got mine at a home improvment store.
