Whether you’ve just gotten out for summer vacation like us, or you’ve been enjoying pool time for almost a month now, summer is the perfect time for extra craft projects. I’ve teamed up with some of my fellow Cricut bloggers to bring you a dozen great ideas for something you can work on this summer. (Remember that some of these links will be affiliate links, and if you buy something I get a small percentage, so thanks bunches!!)
For my Cricut project I made personalized coasters for my kids. They will each have their own designated place to put a cup all day long. So hopefully it will prevent them from getting a new cup out 15 times a day, leaving those cups all over every flat surface in the house, and then having the dishwasher fill up with only cups! What do you think? Do we have a chance here? I’m going to find out (and 2 days in, so far so good.)
Anyway, here’s what you’ll need:
Plastic coasters (I found a 4-pack at the dollar store, so check there first!)
1×6 board (cut to the right length to fit the number of coasters you need)
Paint or stain
Start by painting or staining the board. I had this pink board left over from another project and repainted it a pretty dark blue/ gray color.
While the paint dries, measure the inside of the coaster and create a circle the same size in Design Space. This will help you size the names right.
Choose your font (I used Everyday Fonts- Something to Shout About) and type each name, using the circle as a sizing guide.
Cut the vinyl and use transfer tape to apply to the insides of the coasters.

The last step is to use hot glue to attach the coasters to the board.
Optional: Put small rubber feet on the bottom of the board to prevent sliding.
