I had seen a tutorial somewhere on the web to make these and thought I would give it a shot. I had purchased the washers a long time ago at an estate sale for $1 for like a thousand. After seeing the tute I thought I would give it a try.
I used Mod Podge to put the text from a French book on the front and back of the washer. After they were on the page (20 of them), I folded up the other half of the page after slathering the back with more Mod Podge. I then took my brayer and rolled it over both sides several time to be sure they were tightly adhered to the page.
I then let them dry. After drying, I cut them into little individual squares and let them dry a bit more. I then used a sanding block to cut off the remaining paper and leave it only on the washer. To make the center hole, I used my hole punch as it was the perfect sick.
I then put Mod Podge Dimensional Glaze on top to give it a bit of depth. I am working on some cork necklace for a wine festival I will be at in early September. This will be on the top and bottom of the cork, so I only put the glaze on one side.
I love how they came out!
