Father's day is approaching, and if you're looking for handmade but stylish gifts that dad will really like, then this post's got your name on it! 


Come to think of it, I'm sure moms, teachers, neighbors, girlfriends...will love 'em too. So you even if you're not intending on crafting anything for father's day, you know you should totally pin it for later, right?! ;)

Directions:

1) For the marble and copper foil coasters: add copper foil to the edges of each coaster. 

2) Make slits on the overlapping edges and fold to top (or bottom of each coaster if needed)

3) Place a coaster onto the marble contact paper, trace the shape and cut. Apply tot eh top of the coaster, pushing the air out with a piece of sturdy card (credit card works great!). 

Repeat the same process (minus the copper foil) with the gold contact paper.

4) For the copper and gold foil coasters: Starting from the center of each coaster, place the tape or contact paper pieces (width of choice) then fold the excess under or trim with craft knife. Smooth out the tape with a soft flannel.

  10. These are so creative and pretty! I love the combination of marble and gold striping - not too matchy-matchy, but complementary for sure. So clever :)
