Of course @autumnalgirl

Coasters

you need:
Wooden plywood coasters, you can buy from Amazon at approx £5 for 20
Modge Podge glue
Wallpaper/scrapbooking paper

Method
Use the coaster as a template to draw onto the paper and cut out
Apply a thin coat of modge podge onto the coaster
Place the cut out paper onto the coaster, smooth from the middle to avoid air bubbles and leave to dry
Once dry apply another thin coat of modge podge on top of the paper and leave to dry. Once dry apply more coats as required. I usually do 2 or 3
Trim around edges when fully dry if needed.

Note these are only suitable for cold drinks. If you want to use for hot drinks you would have to use something like yacht varnish but this increases the cost to make

Magnetic glass pebbles

You need:
Scrapbook paper
Mod podge glue
Glass pebbles £1 in Wilko's for approx 45
Hot glue gun
10mm industrial strength magnets (be careful if using around children)

Method
Draw around pebble onto paper and cut out
Apply Modge Podge to pebble
Apply paper to pebble and allow to fully dry
Apply a dot of hot glue to paper on the back of the pebble
Press magnet on and hold for a few seconds
Voila, all done!
