Weekly Tutorial - Stamped Tile Coasters

This week's tutorial will involve stamping on tile to create a set of Tile Coasters. You will only need a few supplies to complete this simple project.


Supplies: Stamps, tile (natural stone works best), StazOn Ink and StazOn Cleaner, ribbon.


I purchased my tile at Home Depot. This tile is available in a box of 9 for about $6 or separately for less than $1. The tiles used here are 4x4 Travertine tiles. When used as coasters, these natural stone tiles will absorb water from glasses without needing to be sealed.


1. Clean all tiles with a damp cloth and set aside to dry for a few minutes. This will help to remove some of the dry dusty grit that coats the tiles.


2. Using your StazOn ink (this is a permanent ink that will not need to be sealed), ink your stamp image and then stamp the tile. Repeat for the desired look. StazOn ink can be found at your local craft store in a variety of colors. Currently, Stampin' Up! only carries Jet Black, Timber Brown and White.



3. Stamp excess ink on a piece of scrap paper and then clean with your StazOn cleaner. The quicker you clean this ink, the easier it is to remove from the stamp. Some staining will occur.

4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 to make a complete set of Tile Coasters. I would stamp at least 2 or 4 tiles per set.

5. Stack your tiles and wrap in ribbon to complete this project. This simple, inexpensive project makes a great gift.
