Approximate Time: 15-30 minutes
Clean your tiles by wiping them with a damp paper towel to remove any manufacturing dust. Allow to dry.
Ink your stamps with StazOn. Stamp image on your tile. Be very careful as you stamp as the surface may be slippery and your stamped image might smear. I stamped with a background stamp first (the black script stamp)
Using sandpaper, gently sand the tile to soften the first stamped image.
Ink your main image stamp with Staz-on. Stamp your image on your tile.
Allow the ink to dry. You can also heat set the ink with a heating gun or in the oven.
If your main image needs color, you can use decorative chalks to color in your image. Use a tissue or q-tip to blend in your colors.
If colored with chalk, lightly spray a coat of clear acrylic.
When dry, attach the felt or cork bumpers to the bottom of your coasters to prevent scratching of your furniture.

These are a lot of fun to make and are great for wedding and housewarming gifts. When you buy your tiles, make sure they are not glazed porcelain tiles, these may be inexpensive, but your ink won't set and water will smudge it.
