2. Using the image as a guide, layout the tiles, leave 1/8” space from the edge and between each tile.
3. When you are satisfied with your designs, spread adhesive over one coaster.
4. Next, place each piece onto the base. Place tiles, starting with two adjacent sides, this way you can ensure the tiles fit nicely width and height wise. Be sure to leave 1/8” space from the edge and between tiles. Continue filling the coaster until it is complete and repeat with additional coasters.
5. Allow glue to dry according to manufacturer’s instructions before moving on to the next step.
