As most people I know do, I love looking at Pinterest and getting awesome ideas, but I never actually make them! Here is one of my Pins that I actually made, and I love how it turned out!
Scrabble tile coasters!
When we were at Absolutely everything for the 60 second crafty dash, I picked out all these Scrabble tiles as they carry them there. I think for the future, though, I'm going to be picking up Scrabble games at the Flea Market as the tiles were 30 cents each making 4 coasters almost $20 bucks! I had Jen and Suzanne helping me get the tiles which made it much quicker (I had to get my game plan (for when my name was drawn) ready, afterall!). So these are mounted on some cork (thanks Suzanne!), secured with wood glue and sealed with Mod Podge. Here they are all ready to send to my brother (who is an avid Scrabble player) for his birthday!
That's not all, I also am sending him some of my homemade peach salsa that I canned this weekend. The top is made using Paper Smooches Fruittastic and Alphadot. The salsa has no tomato in it, its base is peaches which makes it really sweet (but also spicy since it has jalapeno peppers in it ;)
Just thought I'd share before I put these out in the mail today. I think he will love this gift :)
