In our home, coasters are more that a cup colder. They are decorative, fun, and often a conversation piece.
These coasters are very easy to make. You can find the design for the coaster on just about any paper item. I used note cards, but you can use wrapping paper, Decoupage paper from paper stacks, or just about any printed paper. You can also print your own photos!
I love how these coasters are pretty decor and more than just a coaster. I made four of them but I am definitely going to make a few more.

How to Make Corkboard Coasters
What you Need to Make this Easy Paper Craft
- Six paper designs to use for the coaster, approximately 4″ wide
- Thin corkboard, approximately 1/4″ thick
- Scissors and Exacto knife
- Mod Podge
- Paint Brush
- Clear Matte Sealer
Cut out your design.
I cut off the leaves but that was it. The size of these flowers is perfect!
Place the Mod Podge on the back of the design. Add more Mod Podge on top and make sure the paper cut out is completely covered.
Let dry, and coat two more times to waterproof coasters, allowing time to dry in between.
Let the the flower dry. (I used a hair dryer and it dried very quickly!) Cut the cork in to smaller pieces.
Cut out the design and the corkboard with scissors and an exacto knife. Spray with matte clear sealer.
Don’t these look amazing? I love how these came out.
The Mod Podge will protect the paper from water stains. I thought about adding another coat of Mod Podge all over the coaster. But in the interest of time (which is always my story) I just wanted to get these done.
Frequently Asked Questions
Absolutely! It is soft and won’t scratch the surface and it will also absorb the heat.
Yes. This would work so well as cutting the cork is the hardest part. Just cut the size of your image down to the size of the cork piece.
