DIY Christmas Drink coasters

So are you all ready for Christmas??  I think I am, I hope I am anyway!  LOL
 I just wanted to share with you a set of 4 D.I.Y drink coasters I made to give as a gift.
I used MyMemories digital scrapbook software to make my 4x4 photos
along with 4 different .png files from the "Holiday Owls" pattern set from Designs on Cloud 9 for the centers of my tiles.  I framed the .png images with some matching digital papers and then stamped them using 4 different phrases from the  "oh Christmas Puns" and "Wintery Puns" collections from stamps.
I put some Stickles on for a Blingy affect - everything looks better with a little glitter!
Make sure you clean you tiles before applying Mod Podge.
 I put one layer of Mod Podge over tile and put down my photo making sure to push it down from the center to the edges to eliminate any air pockets and let dry.  I put 2 layers of Mod Podge over the photo tiles letting dry between coats and I also sealed them with 2 coats of sealer, also letting dry between coats.
Finally I attached a piece of felt to the bottom of the tile to protect your surfaces,
tied them up with a pretty ribbon and Whala!!
 A cute handmade gift!
Thanks for visiting!
Hugs, Staci
