Birth stats coasters (from old tiles)

I mentioned a little while back that I was able to pick up some old tiles for cheap. 

I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them!

I mod podged on a square of dark blue tissue paper, let it dry, then added a light blue sheet of tissue paper. I didn't mind about a few wrinkles as I thought it was a cool effect.

Once they were dry I stamped on my granddad's birth date and later sealed it with two or three layers of mod podge. 

It didn't take as long as it sounds. I just left them out and did a coat/stamped every day.

And added a square of felt on the bottom with a hot glue gun.

Another gift down, and quite enjoying the challenge of no spend summer!
