Here's an easy way to make handmade coasters for gift giving that's sure to be hit this holiday season.
I found a set of plain cork coasters at the Goodwill, but you can get a set of cork squares at the craft store. Mine had a solid backing already, so you'll need to add a smooth backing by cutting out cardboard to fit the cork and glue on. Next, paint the smooth cardboard side with acrylic paint. While the paint is drying, separate the layers of the napkin, using the printed or decorative layer.
