Craft Night with Gabi

Told ya i'd be bad at this. haha =) I've been so busy! We redid our downstairs bathroom, and I wanted to post before and after pictures so maybe I will later? It's almost done.- I LOVE it.  What else is new...
Today was fun! Today we celebrated the To-be-Marriage of Sarah & Scott (Oct 22 2011). My Mom Gabi and I went. It was so great to see everyone. Well Gabi and I decided to hang out all night and craft! We ended up making  Coasters out of 16 cent tile! Woo Hoo! Check out the tutorial that inspired me Here!
We went to michaels and got double discounts today and bought everything we needed!
This is us with our massive gift ;)

Got home and got started... 3 hours later....Here's the finished product!

SO fun! I made 3 sets, Gabi made 2- pretty good for our first try??! Cant wait to do them again! Hope you all had a great weekend! Leave a comment and let me know what you think! =) ( ya know.. so I dont feel like im talking to myself! )

I really like your coasters Jenelle!! They are amazing!!! Where they really hard to make?

Jenelle said...

no! they were fairly easy! just time consuming if you want to make more than one set, and to buy the supplies i would think you would have to make more than one set =) but thanks!

Your coasters turned out beautifully! I've seen several tutorials for making these & have made some using photos but they have to be sealed. I took the advice of some tuts and use a resin pour on as a sealer but it is very "delicate" for a long time and is cumbersome to use.

Did you seal your coasters and, if so, what did you use? If it was the polycrylic mentioned in the original blog, was it sticky when used with hot drinks?

Thanks for any info you can provide!
