Unique Gifts: How To Make "Heart Felt" Coasters for Valentine's Day!

/ Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Not all food-related Valentine's Day goodies need to be edible (nor lick off-able, but let's table that conversation for another time). In fact, here's a quick homemade gift I whipped up this morning: his-and-hers felt heart coasters. To make these, trace a heart onto adhesive felt and foam paper (this keeps 'em from sliding), cut out, stick together and decorate. Here, I'll walk you through it....

Print a heart to use as a guide (most glass bases are about 3-inches in diameter, so make them at least that big). Trace the outline onto adhesive felt and foam paper. Cut out the shapes. Pair together 1 felt heart with 1 foam heart; trim any overhang if needed.

 Peel off the adhesive backing from the felt and press onto the foam heart to secure.Use white fabric paint to write on the hearts. I made "yours" and "mine" and "ours" coasters.

That's it! What do you think? I'm going to set these guys out next time boyfriend and I have a movie date at home. Awwww! Being in love is the cutest/greatest/dorkiest ever! xoxo
