Martha Monday Assignment: 8/17Posted by in Crafts | Martha Mondays
For Martha Monday on Monday, August 17, let’s make the map coasters on page 42 of August Martha Stewart Living. If you don’t have the magazine, never fear! Here’s what to do.
You need paper maps (and if you don’t have any you could print some online, or use any other decorated or patterned paper you have), cutting mat, round cork coasters, craft knife, foam paintbrush and ModPodge.
Put the map on the cutting board, facedown and cut it out by tracing the coasters with the knife. Brush the ModPodge on one side of the coaster and stick the map onto it. Smooth the map to get rid of bubbles. Put more ModPodge on top of the map and on the sides, brushing it to smooth it out. Let it dry.
And if you’re new to Martha Mondays, anyone can join. Just do the craft, recipe or project on or around the planned date. Post it on your blog and put a link in a comment here. If you don’t have a blog or don’t want to blog it, feel free to just leave a comment here. I’ll post my results on Tuesday. The idea is we will all work on the same project on Martha Monday (if possible – if you want to d0 it earlier or later in the week, that’s perfectly ok) and report our results later in the week. Try to put your results as a comment to my post with my results, so we have them all in one place if possible. Can’t wait to see how everyone likes this one!

Yeah! I was wanting to do this project. Now I have an excuse.
This sounds like fun. Map coasters don’t match my home decor but my family has a cabin by the beach so they would be cute there. For those who can’t find cork coasters for the project, you can get cork “planter coasters” in the garden section of most home improvement stores or nurseries.
Good tip. Thanks! I’m going to go try to buy mine today.
I’m going to give this a try! My daughter is a cartographer and if these turn out well, they’ll be a great Christmas gift!
That’s a great idea!
