Coasters and a Snowman or Two ;)

I have a couple of bored 9 year olds at my house that are anxious for Christmas to come and needed to use some of their restless energy. We found an idea online and decided to create some of our own. They did the entire project on their own and I think they turned out great!!!
My hubby is a big coaster user. He always has been one that needs a coaster. I was watching a show one time (can't for the life of me remember what is was!) and a guy came in and sat his drink on the table, his friend turned and said to him, "What are you an animal?" because he didn't put a coaster down. It cracked me up because that would be my hubby for sure!

Anyway, people at work had been teasing him about the coaster that he uses at board meetings, etc. So, he decided it would be great to make all of them a personalized coaster. Here is what I came up with. I will post a supplies list below. They are super easy and I think they turned out great. I ended up making 22 of them :)

Supplies: 4X4 in tile, vinyl, felt circles (for the bottom), and some type of sealer (I used some stuff I got at Hobby Lobby called Triple Thick). I used my cricut to cut the vinyl and then applied it to the tile and sealed it. Placed the four felt circles on the bottom and was done :)

Cute ideas! Love the coasters. Is that what you were making when you asked about the cartrige?

Love em! A friend of mine made me some monogrammed coasters, and I have been wanting to try it myself ever since.
