Coasters come in all shapes and sizes, but they all serve one purpose…or do they? Get inspired with some fun prints or creative uses with custom designed coasters.

DO-IT-YOURSELF

Snowflake-coaster

HOLIDAY CHEER

Punch a hole and string ribbon through the top of your snowflake coaster to create a cute holiday gift tag that also doubles as a Christmas tree ornament.

Connect4-coaster

FUN & GAMES

Take your coasters outdoors! Turn them into giant lawn games at your next summer BBQ.

Connect Four: Build your own board with plywood and a little elbow grease.

Giant-chess-game-coasters

Checkers: Paint a checkers board onto a large piece of cardboard and lay it out on your lawn for summertime fun. For nighttime fun, use glow-in-the-dark paint on alternating squares and glue different colored glow bracelets around the edge of the coasters to keep playing after the sun goes down.

Summer-party-coaster

WHEN LIFE HANDS YOU LEMONS

Make it a party! Create custom coasters in a citrus theme and add the party date to pass out to friends and neighbors. Use acrylic paint to color some in yellow (lemon), green (lime) and pink (grapefruit).

DRINKS:

Glue coasters onto pitchers to mark regular lemonade and pink lemonade for the kids, and margaritas for the adults. Serve drinks in mason jars with matching coasters glued to the bottom (garnish with a slice of lemon or lime).

DÉCOR:

Score and bend the coasters in half to look like citrus slices, and then string the banner.

DIY-Gold-Leaf-Agate-Coasters

COUTURE COASTERS

Love agate coasters, but hate the price? Create custom coasters in your favorite print, then paint the edges of your coasters in gold to look like the natural stone. Add a personal touch by painting your initials in cursive.

BabyCoaster

BOY OR GIRL?

Send out invites to your gender reveal party on a coaster. Continue the theme at the party with coasters printed in the color of your baby’s sex on one side. Place all the coasters face down, and when the time comes,  have your guests flip over the coaster to find out if you’re having a little prince or princess.

Inspirational posters catch a lot of flak, but the effect of a motivating home office space should not be underplayed. Decor that energizes and effects you can definitely bring focus to your work. If you’re seeing clients at home, it communicates messaging about your brand and professional ethos. 

So, whether your working motto is “seize the day” or  “hang in there, kitty,” a cool, motivational print or gallery wall can have a real effect on your business. Here are some ideas to perk up your home office. You’ll feel ready to bring on the day, no matter what it has in store for you.

For the attorney: minimalist think pieces

Clients come to you because you’re able to distill complicated legalese down to its most essential phrasings. An Escher-inspired pencil or ink drawing shows that you’re capable of seeing past what’s on the surface, while the clean lines echo the seriousness you bring to each case.

For the counselor: simple works with a slight sense of humor

If you’re a professional psychologist or social worker, you could probably use a laugh anywhere you can get it. Offbeat, humorous pieces provide a wink and a nod that will help you cope on those really difficult days.

For the designer: a graphic gallery in unexpected colors

To you, the whole world is an icon just waiting to be designed. Minimalist decor in your office lets the art in your space—and its vibrant, surprising color palette—take center stage, just as it should be.

For the entrepreneur: Two-toned prints in energizing colors

You may have come up with the world’s next disruptive technology, but you’re not going to get anywhere if your branding’s not on point. That means a panel of thought-provoking prints in a pulsing, electric shade that throbs like a neuron—perfect for someone about to capture the energy of the next zeitgeist.

For the scientist: Artistic renderings of charts and maps

Who says science and art don’t mix well? The beautiful watercolor above begs to differ. Gorgeous works along science-y themes let others appreciate your versatility—and perhaps bring a new awareness of the beauty of the STEM world.

Via Apartment 34

For the real estate agent: Lush black and white photos with eclectic flair

Yes, you’re selling the comforts of home—but today’s buyers want spaces serving as design statements, too. A few rich, interesting photos juxtaposed with warm, blonde wood reflects that image to your clients, letting them know they’re in safe hands with you.

The event has ended, the caterer’s bills have been settled, and the photos posted online. The thank you notes and well wishes have been written—and received. There’s just one thing left to do, and it’s weighing you down with the heft of 100 unused posters.

For the sake of your closet space, something really needs to be done with the leftover print materials you never got to use. Throw them away? After all the work you put in, creating the design and ordering the prints—not to mention paying for them? No thank you! Thankfully, you don’t have to trash your design—you can re-purpose it into one of these clever projects.

Tiny Tags

Christmas gifts, party favors, and wedding presents—many things could use a tiny, homemade attachment. This look uses brown paper craft tags and a sewing machine to give the cards a vintage touch. They appear as though they were swiped straight from a Victorian curio cabinet.

lamp

Geometric cardboard lamp

If you’re like most people, you probably don’t associate cardboard with lamps. That’s just what this tutorial will get you—and no, you don’t have to be an origami wizard to do it. Make sure to use an LED bulb, since it will make your light stay nice and cool.

mobile

Grown up mobile

Why should kids get to have all the fun? This chic mobile re-purposes triangle-shaped pieces of leftover paper for an effect that’s both eye-catching and whimsical. It would work well in a nursery however, it’s also mature enough to bring to your craft room, bedroom or kitchen.


basket

Recycled paper basket

If you’re less attached to your print’s aesthetic and are good with an X-acto knife, you may be the perfect candidate for this recycled paper tutorial. It will take some patience, but at the end, you’ll have the perfect pint-sized vessel for fruit, candy, toiletries, and potpourri.

That’s one way to give a new life to your leftovers!
