*Paper cutter or scissors

Step 2: Place your coaster on top of your photos and measure where you will cut them down.

Step 3: Place your felt circles on the back of the tiles.

Step 4: After cutting out the photos, you are going to apply one layer of Mod Podge across the entire tile.

Step 5: Immediate place your photo on top of the Mod Podge. Pressing it down to ensure it attaches and that there are no bubbles.
