Easy Coasters

I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time finding coasters. Let alone cute ones. So when I saw 12 x 12 sheets of adhesive backed cork at the scrapbook store, I was excited. My paper trimmer cut through the cork, so these were super easy to make. Slap a little Mod Podge on and you’re good to go!
I made 9 out of one sheet, which cost $1.29. Can’t beat that! I’m thinking these would make cute wedding gifts; throw in a bottle of sparkling grape juice, some chocolate kisses, and some fun glasses, wouldn’t that be cute? Or even Christmas presents….

PS Thanks for all your tips and tricks on flying with a baby. I really appreciate all your comments! If you have any more suggestions, please scroll down and leave a comment. Thanks!

    Great coasters!
    As to tips on traveling – relax if you can. I have stressed myself out about flying with my little girl, and each time she handled everything better than I did. And you really won't know until you get through it all.

    Plan for even longer than you think in terms of food, drink, clothing, etc. The security people will let you bring things for your little one like milk, water for formula, etc.

    Oh, another joyous thing- flying seems to make them poop. So be ready for that. And try to avoid the rooky mom move I made – don't travel (either of you) in your 'party' clothes. Change them once you land if you are heading to a special occasion. Ask me how I know this…

    If you are going to do the Benadryl thing, do a test drive. Some (very few) kids get wired with it and you don't want to find out that yours is one of the special ones while on a flight.

    Bring toys, games, books, snacks, etc. Some loved favorites and some new ones as well for exploring. The last time we flew I tied a ribbon/yarn to the toys and pacifier so that they wouldn't hit the floor, or worst case, get lost under the seats if they dropped or were thrown. I really don't like airplane floors! Yuck!

    It will be fine. It is only one day on this great adventure of kid-ness. Good luck.

    So cute! I need coasters and haven't been able to find any I like. Are they really thick enough? Of course, I think the closest store with scrapbook stuff is, umm, two hours away! So I'll have to plan ahead. Thanks for a great idea!

    They're a little thin, but if you use the cork side, it absorbs the condensation just fine. If you make some, send me a link. I would love to see yours!
