Easy and affordable Mod Podged coasters

I always have trouble finding something to make as a guy gift.  Here, I have made some super easy and affordable coasters. 
4   4inch x 4inch tiles (16 cents each at Home Depot)
scrapbook paper
Mod Podge
foam brush
Clear Sealant Spray
3/8 inch self adhesive felt dots (not shown here)

First, I cut the scrapbook paper into 4 inch by 4inch squares with my paper cutter.  Then, one at a time I put a single coat of Mod Podge on the tile and placed a square of scrapbook paper on top of it.  I just used my finger and rubbed over the top of the paper to smooth out any bubbles.  Once all four tiles had the Scrapbook paper adhered, I went back and painted a coat of Mod Podge over the top of the paper. 

I allowed this to dry completely and added one more coat of Mod Podge over the top.  When the second coat had dried I sprayed them with several coats of the Clear Sealant Spray.  I then added the self adhesive felt dots to the back of the coaster.  I put one small felt dot on each corner to keep them from scratching anything that they were placed on.  Here is the finished product. I put them on a small metal easel stand I had and added a bow. Sorry for the blurry picture I will try to do better!
