I have seen a bunch of these on Pinterest lately…decided to give them a try myself.
I used sunprint paper from Acorn Naturalists and printed some of my favorite things onto the paper. “This Sunprint art utilizes sun-sensitive paper that can be developed using plain tap water. Natural objects such as ferns, feathers, flowers or leaves are placed under a transparent cover (provided) and exposed to the sun for from 1-5 minutes.”
These tiles are only .33 each, so this is a great inexpensive project!
I printed them earlier this year and just hadn’t found the right project for it yet, but this one is it! I used the pages with daisies and ferns for these coasters. I love the blue color of the paper after it has been developed.
The tiles are actually 3.75 x 3.75 inches, so I cut the paper with my trimmer to be a bit less than 3.5 inches square. Then I just Mod Podged them right down onto the tiles. I also made some coasters using scrapbook paper.
The hardest part of the whole project was waiting for the Mod Podge to dry!
I used some self adhesive cork circles to put on the back to keep the tiles from scratching furniture.
I used matte Mod Podge and applied 4-5 coats to keep the paper protected. Eazzzzy!!
I am linking up to these great parties!
