Video Game Coasters - My Sheri Crafts Challenge Entry

The challenge this week at My Sheri Crafts is to make a masculine themed project. Be sure to check out their here: http://myshericrafts.blogspot.com/. I made these coasters for my hubby to use in his game room.  I wanted them to be kind of vintage looking, so I went with these images from Halo Reach, Bioshock and Fallout 3.  I printed the images off of the computer onto cardstock.

These are made from a do it yourself coaster kit that came from Hobby Lobby.  I painted the coasters with metallic silver paint.

Next, I attached the pictures to the coasters and covered them with Mod Podge.  I used three layers of Mod Podge to make sure it was fully sealed.

The kit also comes with the pads to put on the back of the coasters.
Here is an upclose pic of each coaster.
