Well Isn't That Completely Awesome
What is this glorious piece of art? I can practically hear your oohs and ahhs through the fiber optics that connect us. I'll tell you what it is - a custom coaster. I saw this tutorial through my cousin's pinterest site and knew I had to give it a try. You see, my cousin is one of the top 10 most amazing people in all of the world, and she's always sending me ideas that she thinks I would like. And I'd say she's pretty much bang-on almost all the time.
Anyways, this is one of the things she sent me. I'm in a rush to get out the door (climbing the ski hill at boot camp tonight - I can already imagine how sore I will be in 2 days...) but I wanted to share this awesomeness with you before I went out. I've got big plans to make a schwack of these tomorrow after work, so I'll update the post then and include the link to the original site this idea came from. What you need to know tonight is that tomorrow you will need to go out and purchase some beautiful patterned paper, some Modgepodge, a sponge brush, some 4x4 tiles (glossy ones are just fine, and they're usually the cheapest), and a can of spray acrylic sealer. Oh, and you'll also need some little chocolates to keep you busy while you're waiting.
