Materials:

  • Circle silicone mold
  • Resin
  • Paper cup or container you can ruin
  • Mixing stick
  • Patterned scrapbook paper
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint brush

How to make patterned coasters:

1. Start by creating your resin. For this you will need a paper cup (or a container you don’t mind ruining) and a mixing stick. I highly recommend doing this outside as the resin is pretty strong smelling. Make sure to read the instructions on your resin as each one is different. For my resin I poured equal amounts of the two liquids and stirred continuously for 2 minutes straight. I ended up with about ¼ cup total.

2. Once your resin is mixed pour it directly into your silicone mold. Let dry overnight (or per resin instructions).

3. Once your resin coasters are done curing, pop them out of the silicone mold.

4. Next, take your patterned scrapbook paper and trace around your coaster using a light pencil. Cut out the circle.
