Colorful Coasters

EDCO: Gift Cards

A great gift idea that uses recycled items from your home!

What You Need:

  • Lids from margarine or yogurt containers
  • Old greeting cards, postcards, fabric, wrapping paper or magazines
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Water-based sealer
  • Pencil

What You Do:

EDCO: Plastic Container
  • Place a lid over top of a greeting card, magazine page or piece of fabric and trace around the lid with a pencil.
  • Cut out the shape you just traced and glue it to the lid. Repeat on as many lids as you like.
  • Another option is to cut out many tiny pieces of greeting cards, fabric or magazine pages and glue them onto the lid the way you would if you were making a collage.
  • Finally, once the glue has dried, you have to seal the coasters with a water-based sealer to protect them from moisture.
