We had so much fun making these coasters with our ArtesprixÔ Heat Press but you can easily use a dry iron or home iron as well. We used pink and green in our design but you can easily alter the colors based on your table décor.

Materials Needed:

1. Artesprix Blank Textured Coaster

2. Artesprix Protective Paper

3. Artesprix Heat Tape

4. Copy Paper

5. Artesprix Markers

Palm leaves and tropical foliage are on trend right now and these coasters will be the perfect addition to an outdoor picnic, luau or beach themed party. I love that I have the ability to make EXACTLY what I am looking for to bring a festive touch to our table.
