Last month I tried to make monogrammed coasters like I have seen online but was not successful. I've tried a lot of new crafts recently and this was the one real failure I've had - so that's not so bad. But I kept thinking they would be so cute if I could just figure out how to do them!
Enter cute monogrammed napkins at TJ Maxx.
I don't know why but the "B" napkins were larger than the "R's".
My family is interesting in that many, many of us have last names starting with R or B.
I'm an R who married a B.
My sister is an R who married a B.
My sister-in-law was a B who married an R.
My mom was a B who married an R.
My mom's sister was a B who married a B.
My dad's sister was an R who married a B.
I have 6 first cousins (all boys) and they are all R's or B's.
So two packs of napkins worked perfectly for me!
These napkins are great because they are printed on 4 sides. So a pack of napkins goes a long way.
They're a little bumpy - I am new to Mod Podge and I may have used too much on the top coat. But I actually really like the texture.
Tiles were 16cents each at Lowe's. Napkins were $4/pack and I only used 2 napkins from each pack so far. I had the Mod Podge, sealant, and cork for the backing so basically $1 per set is how much these cute coasters cost me. And they are sooo cute!
I think they'll make great gifts when we go visit all those I listed above next week in Mississippi!
