Easy to make Coasters

I made these coasters after seeing the directions for them on The Graphic Fairy's blog.  They were so easy to make and so different than anything I've seen in any stores.

I found the tiles at Lowe's for 34 cents each.  I bought adhesive backed cork for the bottoms and the Omni-Gel at Michaels.  I applied the Omni-Gel with a 1" foam brush (also from Michaels).  I printed the birdcage graphic from her site and just used my regular printer.  (My printer is not an inkjet, apparently inkjet printers do not work for this project.)  I sprayed them with clear enamel when I was done so wet glasses don't stick to them.  

She has thousands of graphics that are available on her website. 

Here's the link to the directions.
