Christmas gift idea: Tile coasters with designer paper

This could quite possibly be the easiest Christmas gift you could ever make. And it's inexpensive. I picked up some tumbled marble tiles at Home Depot. These are 4" square. I used a foam brush to cover the top of the washed (these always seem to be covered with a fine powder) tile with Mod Podge, placed a 3-3/4" square piece of Spice Cake designer series paper on top, and then added another layer of Mod Podge to seal the paper on the tile. Give that at least 15-20 minutes to dry, then spray a Clear Acrylic Coat on top (you can select from matte and glossy. I like the matte.). There are felt "feet" under each corner of the tile. You can get these at a Dollar Store. Or you could add a felt or cork square to the underside, if you have either of those on hand. That's it! I plan on wrapping these up with a pretty bow and presenting it to a friend.
