Instructions

Begin by opening and printing out the file below. You’ll find two sizes of the Resistance Emblem. (Obviously, I don’t take credit for the emblem design)

The smaller one is for 3″ circles like the ones I made, the bigger one is for coaster size (4-4.5″). Yes, I made mine too small to be a standard coaster BUT it still works for juice glasses.

Either cut out the emblem and trace onto the back of your Red Foil Cardstock and cut that out… or just cut the two out together to save time. Do this for the number of coasters you want/have supplies for.

Take your Wooden Circles, trace on the back of your Black Foil Cardstock and cut one out for each coaster.

Set aside your cutouts and paint your wooden circles with the Black Metallic Paint on both sides and the edges. Let it dry!

Tip: Paint with your brushstrokes going the same direction.

Use Craft Glue to secure your black foil cardstock to one side of your wood circle.

Wipe off the excess with a Paper Towel or rag.

Use your craft glue again for the emblem cutout. Make sure it is a really thin layer of glue. Stick it on dead center and really work on those thin parts so they stay down. The cardstock will have warped with your glue, no worries! it’ll be fine.

Next, add some wear and tear by using your fingernails to scratch and dent your emblem.

Once everything is set and dry, prepare your Acrylic Circles. They come with protective films that need to be removed before gluing onto your coaster. Take one side (or both) off, make sure no dust is on it, and set it aside.

Use a Toothpick to spread a very thin bead of E6000 around the edge of your coaster. This will turn a little bubbly once the acrylic circle is on. It works for this project, but it’s definitely not a “clean” look so be warned for other projects.

Apply your acrylic circle and put under a flat weighted object to dry.
