Step 4: I found a spool of ribbon that was the same size as the inset of the coaster and traced it onto the back of my scrapbook paper and cut it out Step 5: Mod Podge it baby! First apply a generous amount to the back taking extra care to get the edges, and secure it down to the coaster. Wait about 20+ minutes for it to dry before applying Mod Podge to the top. I added two coats of Mod Podge to the top waiting at least 20 minuets in between. I am an impatient person when it comes to these types of projects, but you really need to wait the appropriate time on this step or you'll get bubbles under the paper. Step 6: Add a coat of clear gloss glaze. You have to wait 24 hours before doing the other side, this was the hardest part for me!
This was such an easy and inexpensive update. I really wish I would have done this oh, five years ago!
