I have been searching for new coasters for quite some time now. I have also been dying to apply this stamp DIY  to some sort of project. Today's corkboard coaster DIY seemed like the perfect way to satisfy both desires.

What you will need:

-Corkboard

-Exacto Knife

-Ruler

-Acrylic Paint

-Paintbrush and/or stamp (optional)

coaster diy 1First, you will take your ruler and measure out 4 inch by 4 inch squares. Do this for as many coasters as you would like to make. Then, take your exacto knife and cut along the measurements you have marked out in order to get clean edges.

coaster diy 2You can either decorate your coasters by painting your own design or by using a stamp. I chose the latter. I made my own stamps and then dipped them into the acrylic paint color of my choice.
