I saw an earlier post of magnets made from ceramic tiles and Sue suggested that coasters could also be made from tiles.  Here are some I've made from stamps and vintage papers.  The tops have been sealed with several coats of waterproof finish. They are completely covered on the back with cork.

I've made some coasters in the past but love your idea of combining the printing with old pages/papers. Gotta grab my pile of tiles and get busy. NICE WORK!! Posted: 8:10 pm on February 7th
