My New Coasters.

For my bedroom, I've wanted a couple of  coasters, but I've been a real cheapskate refusing to pay £2 for a set. 

Originally, I had en-suite bathroom, that got ripped because of the shoddy workmanship.
 I asked if the work men could retain some of the black tiles, but were  most of tiles were redundant.

However, I was able to find two viable ones perfect for coasters. The coaster only need a clean, I wanted to tart them up.  






 I had some of my favourirte sticky back plastic left over. 



 I placed the tile on the sticky back plastic and cut around it.  






I cut out a piece of  vinyl big enough to wrap around all the tiles a bit like wrapping a present. Cut the excess out of the corners.


             

I folded the two larger pieces first and the narrower sides this assisted creating a neater finish. 




The back looked fine, but I wanted to finish the back of the coasters felt.  




I cut around the tile to get a template for the back and made the back piece slightly narrower.

I glued the felt on using a hot glue gun alternatively pva glue, fabric glue or double side tape would suffice.  





I love my finish product and if I can save money, all the better,
