Make: Tile Trivets

Okay Friends, this is one of those projects that is so easy I dare not even call this a how-to post, more like a in case you haven't thought of this before or you have thought of it, but forgot about it or hadn't worked out the details yet. I have been picking up tiles at the thrift store lately, but I really wanted to make sure I was using them and not just adding them to my every growing collection of "pretty things to do something with". Here is how I turned them into Trivets.
What You'll Need:
Tiles - Mine are quite large, but you could use smaller ones as coasters.
Cork Contact Paper - You can find this in the cleaning section of Target. You could also use just a regular sheet of thin cork and glue it on, but I already had the contact paper.
Scissors - I used my kitchen scissors, because they cut through tougher materials nicely. What You'll Do:
As I said this is sooo simple, all you need to do is trace around the tile on the sticky side of the contact paper, cut out the shape, peel off the protective paper and stick the tile.
So there you have it, a quick and easy project for a Friday afternoon.
