DIY Holiday Gift Idea: Monogrammed Coasters


Ginger Bowie is one of the craftiest people I know.  She writes an amazing blog called "Ginger Snap Crafts" where she shares crafty ideas DAILY.  I am not quite sure how she has so many creative ideas, the time to shop for the supplies, create the projects, edit her photos (brilliantly, I might add!) and then write tutorials like she does.  Did I mention she also has FIVE kids? I complain about managing two.  She seems to effortlessly manage all this and FIVE?  Anyway... I'll just get to our series on DIY Holiday Gift Ideas!  Today's idea is by Ginger, and she has created Monogrammed Coasters!



This is so simple!  For this project, you will need:

  • PSA Essentials Archive Peel & Stick stamps 
  • Coasters 
  • An acyrlic block 
  • Black ink (must be permanent!) 
  • Ribbon 
  • A permanent fixative, that is water resistant. 


Load your Peel & Stick stamps on your block, dip in the ink, and stamp on the block!  Use a ruler to line up if you are concerned with placement.  Mark it with a pencil if you really want to be exact on each one!


Once you stamp and let it dry, be sure to spray with a fixative that is water proof.   There you have it, you've  transformed a boring coaster into something personal.  Tie the stack with a ribbon and you have a great hostess gift, stocking stuffer or small gift for the holidays!
