Welcome to the 7th Day of Christmas
Day 7 is a handmade gift for the home. These are beautiful Christmas coasters – perfect for your home or giving away.
I must warn you that the tiles do get quite hot so make sure you use a heat protected surface and be careful not to touch them until they have cooled off.
I bought my tiles from Topps Tiles in the UK and they are called Tumbled Limestone and here is the link. I went to my local store and bought a handful but you can also purchase a whole box online. These tiles are not shiny – they have a natural powdery matt finish. I sealed my coasters with a satin varnish spray (3 coats top, sides and bottom) and added a cork bottom from a roll of self adhesive cork. You can also use foam pad protectors from the hardware store. I would not recommend using Mod Podge to seal your tiles as it causes the surface to become tacky and will stick to your mug when you lift it. These coasters are wipe clean only.
Thank you for visiting day 7’s project. If you have enjoyed today, please subscribe to my blog on the right and/or my YouTube channel so you don’t miss the rest of the series.
Hostess Code Club – do you like free gifts?
All orders over £25 (before shipping & handling) & using this month’s Hostess Code at checkout will receive a Hostess Gift from me. If your order is over £150, please do not use this code – you can claim your own Stampin’ Rewards.
All online orders under £150 will collect Stampin’ Rewards (free product) throughout the month. Your order is processed as normal, with it being delivered to your house as usual, so nothing changes there. But, at the end of the month, I close off the code and work out how many people have placed orders and divide the total Stampin’ Rewards between them all, making sure that everyone has exactly the same products.
However, the more people who join the code, the higher the rewards go because everyone is pulling together towards a common goal!
This month’s code can be found at the top right of this page or on the home page
