Instructions

Step 1

Remove the backing from 100 clear glass wall tiles. Clean off any residual adhesive with a damp cloth and divide them into groups of 25 (5 x 5 squares).

Step 2

Select the pressed flowers for each coaster. Use single-petal blooms or whole flowers no larger than 1/2" in diameter. Use a tiny drop of glue to attach a flower to the underside of each tile, leaving some tiles open if desired. Let dry.
Good to Know
We chose four flowers for each coaster: burplerium leaf, yellow multicule (single petals), small-variety orange cosmos (single petals), and small-variety purple viola (single petals).

Step 3

 Set of four pressed-flower and tile coasters
Line up a group of 25 glass tiles on a ceramic tile. Then place a drop of glue on the underside of each glass tile and adhere it to the ceramic tile. Let dry. Repeat this process for the other three coasters. You can use the leftover ceramic tiles to make additional coasters or include them in other projects.

You can press your own flowers with a DIY flower press.
