This coaster was supposed to be made out of a recycled Christmas card but instead ended up as a stenciled cork coaster. Funny how that happens with crafts. You start out with one idea and end up with something completely different. Fortunately it's a nice "different" that makes for an easy craft project. These coasters are also relatively inexpensive to make. Simple directions below.
Cork board - can be found at craft stores and home improvement stores
Staz On Black Ink Pad
Trace circles onto cork board. I used a ramekin for my stencil. Cut out circles with scissors. Cork board is easy to cut with basic scissors.
Tape stencil to cork circle. You can buy a stencil or make your own. I chose the letter "O" for this set.
Using an eraser from a pencil, stamp it onto the ink pad and then stamp it on the cork until you fill in the stencil. Let Dry. Done.
You might be wondering if the ink will run. I was concerned about this as well. I wet the bottom of a glass and set it on the coaster for a couple hours. When I removed the glass the ink was still intact and looked just the same.
