Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons DT post

Welcome back to another design team post for Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  I am excited to share my project with you as it is something I have been wanting to make for awhile now and finally took the time to do it.  I used the Hot Cocoa cutting files and a variety of colors of vinyl to make tile coasters.  The 4x4 tiles were some leftovers hanging around in our garage.  I painted the edges of my tiles so that they would have a more finished look.  I sealed my tiles with a clear spray paint but to be honest I think it would be better to use an actual acrylic sealer as some of the edges of my vinyl lifted after I sprayed them.  To keep my coasters from scratching furniture, I cut up some self-adhesive felt and adhered to the underside of the tiles.  Overall I am quite satisfied with the outcome.  I love this cute hot cocoa cup and thought it made a great image to use on these tiles.
