World Map Hand Stamped Coaster Graduation Gift

Do you have a graduate to congratulate this year?  I've got a great gift idea for you today that is super easy and totally awesome.  
Hand stamped coasters are nothing new.  Stampers have been decorating coasters for years.  It's time to update this little project with an on trend look - maps.  Take even a short tour around Pinterest and you'll see maps used in innovative ways for everything from home decor to jewelry.  Maps are HOT.  And the World Map stamp from Stampin' Up! is perfect for this project!

  1. Stamp your image in Black StazOn and colour in with your ink pads and a blender pen.  
  2. Allow ink to set overnight.
  3. Spray with a protective sealant.
  4. Adhere felt or foam to the underside of your tile to protect surfaces.

Adorable packaging makes all the difference.  Take a few extra moments to give your gift wrap a travel vibe too.  Oh, and change up the sentiment and these would make amazing wedding favours!

Stamps: World Map, Around the World, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Loving Thoughts
Ink: Black StazOn, Wild Wasabi, Gumball Green, Marina Mist
Paper: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla
Ribbon: Natural ⅝" Chevron Ribbon, Gumball Green ⅜" Stitched Satin Ribbon
All supplies available in My Canadian Stampin' Up! Online Store
Additional Supplies: Tumbled Tile, Protective Sealant, Cello Bag, Clothespin

Thanks so much for coming by my blog today.  I hope you'll get the chance to use the World Map stamp in a fun and exciting way soon too!  

Happy Stampin'
