Step 1: Sand all the rough edges off of the tile with the sander. Step 2: Wipe off all the dust with the damp cloth. TIP: Make sure your work space is free of dust after you are done sanding your tile.
Step 3: Measure the width at 4 ¼ inches. Measure the height at 4 ¼ inches. TIP: Remember to work from the edge of the fabric to conserve your materials. Step 4: Draw a line marking the edges of the square you measured.
Step 5: Use your scissors to cut out your square. Step 6: Use hot glue to put glue down around the edges of the tile and a large x in the middle of the tile. Place the felt onto the tile and smooth it out so that it lies flat. TIP: Be careful not to burn yourself! You can use a ruler to smooth out the felt onto the tile if you dont want to touch the felt with your hands.
Step 7: Gather your materials to place the snowflake onto your coaster. Step 8: Use the sponge brush to brush a fine layer of Modge Podge onto the top of the tile. TIP: Place a piece of foil under your tile to create a workspace. You will keep your coaster on the foil until it dries and the final step is completed.
Step 9: Center the snowflake on the tile. TIP: Make sure that everyone places their snowflake on their tile in the same position as yours. These four tiles will make one coaster set! Step 10: Brush a heavy layer of Modge Podge onto the top of the tile and the snowflake. Cover this space thoroughly! Be careful not to move your snowflake as you brush it.
Step 11: Your completed tile should look similar to the one pictured below. Last step: Your finished product will look like this when it dries! TIP: Keep your tile on the foil somewhere safe in your classroom until it is completely dry. Mrs. Spear will spray all the tiles with a water resistant sealant before you assemble the coasters for sale.
