Day 2: 5 Gifts under $5! Decorative Coasters

Today, our gift idea comes from one of our rental members. Dianne has been a rental member since we opened and she shared this great project - "Decorative Coasters."

Dianne purchased stone tiles from a local building supply store and stamped them using Raisin Boat stamp set, "Damask Elegance." She added felt to the bottom of each tile piece so that they slide nicely and protect the table. She makes 4-6 of them and gives them as a set. Her total cost is under $5!

Don't forget to use StazOn or any permanent stamping ink to ensure that your images last, even after getting wet from the drinks!

Ideas to try:
  • Try other Raisin Boat sets for different looks. For example, stamp "It's a Guy Thing" and "It's a Guy Thing Again" images on rough stones for your hubby's bar or "man cave."
  • Use Urban Botanicals or Stunning Silhouettes to create botanical-inspired coasters.
  • Use our "Gals On" series of sets to create funny, high personality, conversational tiles for your girlfriends, too!
  • Stamp a matching tray or candle to add to your gift package.

These tiles are truly stunning! I've got to make a set for myself! Thanks Dianne for your great idea :) Smiles, Bobbi

Create coasters by stamping "Damask Elegance" on natural
stone tiles from a local building supply store.

Use different designs from the set, "Damask Elegance" or
any other Raisin Boat set to coordinate with the room's look.  


  1. I recently made some coasters with your "Thankful" stamp set, using the evergreen wreath. I just stamped and embossed the wreaths on assorted colors of circle shaped card stock, layered onto other circle shaped patterned papers, then used clear Contact paper to seal and make them water proof.

  2. It is truly a nice and useful piece of information. I am satisfied that you simply shared this useful info with us. Please keep us informed like this. Thanks for sharing.
