With that said I can go ahead and continue. Today's craft in honor of Earth Day is once again inspired by
Recycled Drink Coasters
~Before you begin you may want to browse through your magazines and catalogs for images that you like, or if you have a stack already browse through them and select the pages you want to use for your coasters.~
Thin Cardboard or Card stock (I am using a box top from a stationary box)
Mod Podge or another type of glue/sealant
Take your 'circle maker' and trace the circles onto your cardboard or card stock. Cut out your circles with your scissors. Cut them a bit outside the tracing line for safe measure if you wish. You can always cut off more, but you can't add more on.
My box top happens to have a patterned side to it.
Next take your pages and cut a large circle out of them, larger than your coaster base is and glue the top of the coaster to the wrong side of the paper.
Then grab your mod podge and start folding over and gluing down your spokes. Do it a section at a time as you work otherwise you will end up with gluey fingers.
I hope you enjoyed today's craft. This is so quick and easy that you could make some for each holiday or season if you wanted. You could even use this to make personalized coasters as gifts.
And, all joking aside, you can do with with other shapes as well. Not just circles. Squares are pretty easy to cut out.
