  1. Decide on a design. Choose a favorite image from a magazine or old calendar, highlight your favorite photo, or print out one of our exclusive designs.
  2. Cut design to fit the bottom of the coaster or trivet. Our designs are sized to fit the 4-3/4" glass coaster shown, but you can size to fit any clear glass trivet. (See how we trimmed the "family" design to fit a paperweight.)
  3. Attach design to the back of the trivet with decoupage glue. Tip: Choose glue that dries clear and is intended for use with paper, such as ModPodge Paper.
  4. Cut felt to fit the back of the trivet. Glue the felt to the back of the design.
