Gift Idea – DIY Motorbike Tile Coaster Set (Easy!)

I have been on the lookout for the perfect motorbike stamp for a few years. I was over the moon when Stampin’Up! brought out One Wild Ride back in June. I have a few motorbike enthusiasts in the family and I’ve been wanting to make some homemade gifts with this theme for a long time. I just needed that perfect stamp.

These coaster tiles are very easy to make. I simply used Black Stazon and then sealed them with a clear varnish spray.

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. You can use glossy tiles – just be careful not to slip your stamp as it may smudge.

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 (I cut mine to 3.75 x 3.75″). You can also use foam pad protectors from the hardware store. If you use Mod Podge to seal your tiles, please finish with a few coats of the spray varnish, otherwise the surface may become tacky and will stick to your mug when you lift it. These coasters are wipe clean only.

Product List

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!
