Day 131: Wooden Letter Tile Coaster

So, I bought these wooden letter tiles the other week at the craft store. Today seemed like a good day to use them.

Silly me thinking that the tiles would actually all be exactly the same size. Anyway, I played around with different word combinations and finally settled on sandy, beach, water, smile and fun.

I started out by adhering the tiles to a piece of card stock. I then added some small wooden pieces to the back to increase the rigidity (otherwise it curled when I picked it up). I finished the assembly by gluing some cork to the back. I applied Mod Podge on the top and then sealed with an acrylic sealant. The colors are much richer in person and it has a nice sheen to it because of the glossy sealant.
