I had some UGLY coasters and some pretty paper napkins - so I got out the paint and beloved Mod Podge, and here's what happened:
First, I painted them with white acrylic paint. These needed 2 coats in the end.
When they were dry, I separated the top layer from the napkin:
Then decided which parts of the butterflies I wanted on each coaster (I wanted them to all be different) and roughly cut out 4 squares just bigger than the coaster.
Then I gently brushed Mod Podge over the napkin, allowing it to crinkle but not rip.
When they were dry, I gave them a second coat (optional) because I want them to be hard wearing.
This is how they look dry. I don't have any clear varnish, but I'll give them a coat when I get some.
Then, I'm going to give them to my mum!
Hope you've had a good day - have you learnt anything new? xx
