My sister bought a sample at a craft fair. This is a cute way to store matches and use tiles. Here is the finished product. I embossed the angel in copper. Using carpet tape was the easiest way to secure the tiles to the small boxes of matches. Large brad serve as the knob for the match drawers.

How do the coasters hold up when wet? Have you tried that yet? Last year I made a number of coasters using staz on. Well, I was very disappointed when they ran when a small amount of moisture/ condensation got on them. That immediately lets you know what happens when you try to wipe them off with a wet cloth. Did you apply a sealant? I even tried that and they still ran. Help...

These are embossed using versamark copper embossing powder. No way will it run. I made lighthouse coasters at a workshop and embossed in black. Then colored with stampin' pastels and blender pens. We sprayed them with several light coatings of clear poly urethane. I have used them for years and they are still sealed.
I was going to say that as well, I have given a few sets away and so far nobody has complained about them running, but I always use a few coats of sealant. I think the embossing is a good idea though, because then for sure it won't run...
