easy coasters

I've had this idea for a while...contact paper coasters.  
Friday night, I made them (yes..I live an exciting life).
I had a 12x12 sheet of scrap book paper (not cardstock, which I will use next time).  
We were having people over Saturday so I thought these would be cute.


I used my 3" paper punch to cut out the circles.  
I used the contact paper to cover the circles (both sides)


Cut around the paper (make sure the contact paper is sealed all the way around).
Super quick and easy coasters.


Any sturdy card stock would work (better than regular paper). 
Think of all the possibilities!!!  
These are great for my little ones...I don't have to worry about them dropping & breaking them...and/or if they lose them..it's not a big deal.

I'm already planning some cute Halloween and Thanksgiving coasters :)
