Quick and Easy Sunday

>> Sunday, July 26, 2009

Time for another lazy sunday! Actually - i plan on doing some crafting today if i'm lucky! Hubster has to work some, so i'm hoping that i may get to work on some projects! But as promised... Sunday's posts will be of quick and easy projects so you can be lazy the rest of your Sunday afternoons! :)

Today's project is tile coasters. They look stunning, but can take minutes to create! Now dont get me wrong, i've seen tile coasters that i know must have taken the creator ages! I've even made some of those myself... but not the ones i'm showing you today!

What you need:
Tiles (go to a shop store like Home Depot or Lowes and go to the tile aisle. You can buy them in singles in various styles. They usually cost between .25-.50 cents!
Staz On ink (this is important! You need a permanent ink to really stick to the tiles)
Acrylic Spray (i've done projects without it and this is ok if they are for decoration only, but if they will be used, you'll want to spray them to make sure the design doesnt get damaged)
Stamps of choice! - Swirls and decorative backgrounds look fantastic for the quick and easy. A simple swirl and then a word or quote and you're done!
Felt Feet - also optional but i highly recommend them to protect your table tops! I picked up a pack at the dollar store but you can also find them just about anywhere. I'm sure the hardware store you are buying your tiles at will have them.

Here is my quick and easy coasters...

I used the Barouque Motifs set from Stampin Up for this. Stamp the flourish from the set in 1 color (i chose black) and then the flowers from the set in an opposing color (i chose red) and then one of the words and you are suddenly done! And they'll look fantastic!

Now, Gina K made a fabulous tutorial on splitcoast on this whole technique. Her project is absolutely stunning and is a great way to see some different ways to stamp on coasters!

And thats it for my Sunday Quick and Easy post! Have a wonderfu lazy day!

I AM TOTALLY DOING THIS! What an awesome idea for a Christmas gift! I wonder if you could attach photos on them? Would the spray hold them down and protect them, do you think?
