So cute, I love this idea!!  I may add these to my OOT guest bags, as I have already purchased favors.  Thanks for sharing.  Ooh, and I love the idea of the vintage stamp, sounds really cute!  What about a vintage stamp with your picture and date on it?  I do like them as is tho!!

They look wonderful! I may do something like this for our OOT bags.  I would stick with patterned paper like you did for your guests but maybe do special photo ones for your parents and grandparents?  I know that my friends wouldn’t be too impressed having coasters of Mr. K & I in their living rooms! 🙂  Just a thought!

I am planning on doing the same thing for my wedding favors! Where did you buy your scrapbook paper?  I have looked at Michael’s but haven’t found a book that I am in love with and that I think would go with everyone’s houses. 

If I were you I would leave them as.  I think people would use them more if they didn’t have a picture/monogram on them.  I think the tag is enough.

These are great! I showed my fiance and we thought they would be perfect for our favors! I did a little test run with a few the other night. Wondering if you had issues with the paper bubbling up at all? The paper I bought is the scrapbook cardstock. Wondering if I need the thinner paper?

Thank you for sharing!

These are awesome.  I agree that a great paper design would be best for the tiles themselves.  If you wanted more personalization, you could put a photo and/or wedding date on the tag.  Cute cute cute!

What if you got a stamp made up an just stamped it on the bottom.  Subtle but still there….

Something along the lines of “Thank you for sharing in our day” somehow, someway and the date…? it is a useful memory of your wedding day, and they’ll always have your anniversary date 😉

 

So very cute! We stamped on tiles last summer in the craft class I do for seniors… the modge podge paper idea would be even easier and faster for them! 😀  Thanks for posting!!

Looks great!  Plain, they are beautiful.  There are so many options for how you could do them.  You could type a message in a beautiful font thanking the guests, or have the date, your names…stamps, photos…the list goes on!

Another way to surface the bottom so that the coasters will not damage the new owner’s furniture would be to put cork on the bottom.  You can buy this in thin sheets from Home Depot, etc too.  This would cover the whole surface.  We actually used tiles and some remnant floor vinyl glued to the bottom of the tile and use them as trivets in the kitchen, lol!
