Fabric Coasters Sets of 4 AND Yoyo Magnets

Mod Podge Tile Coasters
I am excited to introduce you to my new little project that I've been working on for the past few days.  FABRIC COASTER SETS OF 4!  I used a tutorial that I found on pinterest.com.  Here is the site, http://www.hostessblog.com/2010/07/diy-tutorial-mod-podge-tile-coasters/

I have the tutorial posted in my Tutorial board.  If you are looking to join pinterest.com, you must be invited to join.  I have 5 free invites if you are interested, let me know and I can send you one :)  This tutorial introduced me to my new favorite crafty material. Mod Podge!  It's an awesome adhesive that dries clear.
Materials Needed:
Mod Podge
paint brush or sponge
Plain Tiles 
1 inch hole puncher
Polyurethane Clear Gloss Spry

All I did was with a sponge, place a coat of mod podge on the tile.
Place fabric onto the wet tile

Using a 1 inch hole puncher, cut 4 circles out of black felt
Glue each circle on the bottom side of the tile with E-600

Spray each tile with 2 coats of Polyurethane Clear Gloss Spray

 Here are pics of my new lil beauties.......

***You must wait 6 months before you can put anything HOT on your coasters for the Mod Podge to fully cure***
Still working on a few more sets but heres what I've completed so far.

Since I have the whole summer off, I've tried to spend as much time as I can on my crafty tutorials I've been wanting to try.  
Here are the yoyo magnets that I've been working on as well....
Sorry the pictures are a little dark.  I just added two stronger wattage bulbs in my room but still seems to be a tad dark :/
Well there you have it, my new lil creations!  I'm hoping to start on a few fabric summer wreaths and a queen size quilt with the fabric that I listed prior.  I'm also working on baby wash cloths, blankets, and bibs.  Stay tuned....
