So after dinner at Chili's I took some of the coasters that they pile up on the tables. I didn't like the way they looked so I decided to redecorate!

    Grab some magazines and cut out patterns pictures and designs you like! Girly magazines are great cause they have lots of colorful ads. Catalogs would be good too!

    Arrange the images on to the coaster. If it's a big images you can fold the rest over onto the other side and cover both sides! I Mod Podge the images on. You can use glue if you don't have Mod Podge.

    Then I recommend coating the coaster in clear spray paint or varnish to protect it.

@Z@!ra- mod podge glues things, such as paper, together but you need a protective layer to cover so something like varnish or sealer will help protect it. I used the coasters without using a sealer and the water from my glass reactivated the stickiness of the mod podge and stuck to my glass. I ruined a couple of these coasters before I figured out I needed a sealer.
