1. To make these decorative stone coasters, finished with a Mini Bowdabra Bow, begin with simple stone tiles.
2. To make the coasters start by cutting a napkin into 4 pieces. One napkin will cover 4 tiles!
3. Napkins typically are 2, 3, or 4 ply. Separate the layers so that you are left with a single layer.
4. Coat the top of the tile with Mod Podge, avoiding the sides.
5. Add the napkin to the tile and top with another coat of Mod Podge.
6. Gently tear away the excess paper from the edges of the tile. This works best if the paper is still wet from the Mod Podge.
7. When dry, give the coasters another coat of Mod Podge to ensure that they are sealed and durable.
8. Add felt pads to the bottom of each coaster to prevent them from scratching furniture.
9. Use the Mini Bowdabra with Hair Bow Tool & Ruler to make a bow using jute and 2 ribbons that coordinate with the coasters. Begin by placing the Hair Bow Tool & Ruler onto the Mini Bowabra, cut 18″ of Bowdabra Bow Wire, fold the wire in half, and place it into the Mini Bowdabra. Dovetail the ends of 7/8″ wide satin ribbon place the end a few inches past the ruler, fold and press the ribbon to create 2.5″ loops, and cut a matching tail.
10. Next, fold and press sheer 3/8″ wide ribbon into the Mini Bowdabra to create loops.
11. Finish the bow using the jute and creating bow loops.
12. Complete the bow by scrunching down with the Mini Bowdabra Bow Wand. Thread the two tail ends of the Bowdabra Bow Wire through the wire loop. Pull the wire tightly and remove the bow from the Mini Bowdabra. Knot the wire on the back of the bow. Fluff the bow, tie it to a long piece of jute, and wrap it around the set of coasters.
