Smile Big Lots Find

Big Lots had this coaster set for $2. It has 4 tile coasters and a wire rack to hold them. The back of the tile has cork on it. The front is just paper glued onto the tile which can easily be removed so you can stamp on it. I decided to try some of my Radiant Rains on the tile. Once that dries, I plan on embellishing it further with stamps. The tile is very smooth and a little more than 1/4 inch thick. I have attached some photos of the set plus the one I have sprayed.

The rack to hold them is worth the $2 and then you got tiles with cork on them already too! Lucky girl!

LOL I was just looking at those tonight! Didn't pick any of them up but I thought of many possibilities. Think I might have to go back and pick some up.

I got some of those last year. It didn't occur to me though to redo the tiles. I threw them out. Then I put my coasters in (which were thicker) so I just uncurled the spirals a little bit to accommodate the tiles. It looks great!
