Making recycled paper drink coasters is a fantastic method to preserve the lovely photos that you cut out of magazines. This simple project is an easy way to save a little bit of money while still maintaining a high level of flair.
Both rolled paper and paper baskets that may be reused are particularly fashionable at the moment. I’ll demonstrate how to get things done on your own and save money in the process.
Find the paper you wish to use in the first place. I would recommend thicker pages with more solid color, or something with really bright and vivid colors. I enjoy gardening periodicals like Better Homes and Gardens.
Long strips should be cut to a width of around 1.5 inches. Make sure the side that was folded is facing up after you give it one fold. When you begin rolling them, you should focus on maintaining a beautiful and flat surface on this site since it is the side that will be visible.
Turn them into a large spiral while maintaining a very tight spiral. At various points in the process, run a glue stick over the paper to create a connection that dries quickly.
Continue rolling a couple more times in order to get the desired size.
I used a hot glue gun to attach the rolls to each other so that they would not separate. After that, I utilized some old cork that had been removed from the bottom of several broken coasters as a guide, giving the overall effect more of a coaster.
Despite the fact that you do not need to complete this step, even without the cork bottom, they are quite sturdy. If such is the case, you may just cut off the extra.
I had another use in mind for the broken porcelain coasters, so I saved them.
After I had achieved the form I was going for (which was something similar to a circular), I coated the whole coaster with mod podge as an additional layer of protection.
