Recycled Newspaper Coasters

recycled paper coastersIf you read the end of my last post, you had to know that coiled newspaper coasters were next, right?!  These are quite simple to create.  Not quick, as folding the paper into strips is time consuming, but easy and essentially free.  For my tutorial on creating the strips, click here.

Begin coiling your strips like you are making a circle and morph into square as shown below.  Or you could make round coasters!

To make the handy little coaster holder, make rectangles and attach them using hot glue and or crochet string.  Don’t forget to waterproof your coasters by sealing with Mod Podge (I prefer Matte finish for these) or your sealant of choice!

  13. Where did the instructions (and photos) for the newspaper coasters go? I gathered all my supplies, but now I don’t know how to make them. :(

      The pics on how to make the strips are linked in the post. I didn’t take step by step photos. Just start coiling, then pinch corners to gradually form the square shape shown in the final piece. Hope that helps.
