Instructions:

  1. Fiskars has a huge assortment of holiday themed stamps and I was inspired to have a go at using them in a less traditional way. I used some Fiskars lever punches and border punches from the seasonal range to make some decorative gift wrap so that my bundles are ready for gift giving.
     
  2. I bought some white tiles from a hardware store for less than .20c each. I made sure they were clean by washing them in warm, soapy water and drying them thoroughly. Next, I gathered some of the really fun Fiskars stamp sets and a permanent ink, suitable for stamping onto ceramic surfaces. I practiced a few designs on paper before committing to stamping the tiles. When stamping onto the tiles, I was able to get a very neat impression with the ink, though it is very useful to have a few Q-tips to hand to erase any unwanted ink spots or smudges. I used one end wet and the other dry.
     
  3. After allowing the ink to dry, I sprayed the tiles with an adhesive spray. I experimented with several different finishes, and I found this spray gave a lovely glittery sheen to the tiles. Make sure to use the adhesive spray in a well-ventilated space (preferably outside) and allow to dry thoroughly. (This may take up to several hours to be dry to the touch but it will take a couple of days to be thoroughly dry).

  4. Since it’s always useful to have a few extra gifts on hand, I made two more sets of coasters using paper and fabric.
     
  5. I found some wonderful handmade paper which I cut to fit neatly on my tiles with my paper trimmer. I then used my Fiskars corner punch to decorate the corners of the papers and adhered them to the tiles with Mod Podge.  I gave the tiles about 6 coats of Mod Podge (allowing each coat to dry thoroughly before doing the next) to seal the surface.

  6. I did the same with some fun Christmas fabric.

  7. For my final set of coasters, I couldn’t resist using the Fiskars’ Seasonal punches to decorate the tiles. After 5 coats of Modge Podge, I finished them off with a coat of Modge Podge Glitter to give the surface a bit of Christmas sparkle.

  8. Finally, to complete the tiles, I cut some cork sheets to the correct size with my rotary cutter and glued it to the underside of my tiles with my glue gun.
