Crafty Coasters

You know those cardboard coasters that many people collect from different bars?  Before tossing them into the recycle bin, I wondered if there was something I could do with them.  Pinterest to the inspirational rescue.  I discovered two different ideas and kind of morphed them into my own take on it.  I didn’t have decoupage, so I checked out Pinterest and made my own. I grabbed some interesting papers and those cardboard coasters and decoupaged away.
