I choose to use Cork as my Base.
Add the Pl Glue to the base and place the tiles.
Create words-quotes-phases with the letters "MR JOE IS A GREAT MUSIC TEACHER"
I made 4 coasters as a end of the year thank-you gift for my girls music teacher.
Once done, take a piece of Wax paper, cover the coasters and put a heavy book on top while they dry. Leave it over night. P.S: TRY NOT TO OVER LAP THE GLUE ON THE TILES. DIFFICULT TO SCRAP OFF
I bought a clip board at the dollar store for my base. Used a saw to cut my square.
Bought cork as well at the dollar store.
Once you are pleased with the measurements , glue them together using DL Glue.
Using letters from a recycled Children's game, Scrabble pieces, cutout letters from a magazine .... Let your imagination create words for your coasters.
Once your pleased with the words you've chosen
Dab some DL Glue on the back of your tile. P.S: not to much. It will come out by the sides and look bad.
I placed a piece of wax paper then a huge book for an hour
Once done give your work a nice coat of a clear lacquer finishing.
The end result was really great. I was able to create 4 coasters 1- Simple with Scrabble tiles 2- Using Scrabble letters 3-A simple double sided cork 4-One made out of recycled kids game letters.
