First, I wiped down the tiles front and back. There was a lot of powdery substance on there from the stone. Next, I chose my scrapbook paper and measured it out, and cut the paper accordingly (the tiles were 4x4, so I left a little extra on - more on that later).
Then it was time to put a layer of Modge Podge on the tile, then put the scrapbook paper on top (make sure it's even, or close to). I took the handle of my scissors and rubbed it hard across the paper so it was sure to stick. I let them dry overnight...not sure if it was necessary, but hey it was my bedtime! I think 1-2 hours would be sufficient (just make sure it's dry enough it won't slip off when you're handling them for the next step).

|Paper smoothed out on the tile...I love the texture!|
Next I took a sanding block (also used on these Shabby Chic Letters to achieve the worn look) and sanded the excess paper off. It doesn't have to be perfect, just as close as you can get to the edge. The edges will be rough, that's the look we're going for!
|All roughed up|
|Rubbed some Distressed Ink on the edges|
|Slather 2 layers of Modge Podge on, including the edges, let dry in between|

Of course I had to wrap them up with some cute ribbon!!! So what do you think? Have you ever made any coasters of your own, or are you ever looking for some cute ones and can't find any?
|Lookin' all cute!|
|Ready to hold some beverages! ;)|
|All wrapped up for Aimee in some pink tissue paper and |
