My first Pinterest Challenge! One of my 35 goals for my 35th birthday is to complete 5 project from Pinterest, and here is my first one. Holla!
The coasters I use now in my house are my roommates, and lord knows bachelors do not own coasters, so I decided to give this project a go from fellow fellow.
I started by ordering some inexpensive cork coasters from Amazon, and they arrived exactly as I had hoped. Flat, with no edges.
I was surprised that the paint pen was a little tricky to work with on the cork. The cork disintegrated a little as you drew on it, so making clean lines was a little hard. Also, you had to “tap down” to get more paint flowing on scrap paper, and then draw on the cork. So then I had to keep dipping back into the pools on my scrap to get enough paint to draw anything.
I like the lettered one the best. My plan is to flip the rejects and put initials of all the folks in our new family on the other side. I ran out of time to give it a shot for this post, but I will post more when I get the finals finished!c
