simple and fun-to-make DIY gift

Make these simple cup coasters out of your childhood set of Spirograph!

Almost every child of the 80s and prior must've had a set of Spirograph sometime in their life. If you're lucky enough to still have a set on hand (if not, eBay does the trick), you can make these easy coasters out of some Sharpie pens, cork shelf liner, some thick paper, and a circle cutter.


  • heavy absorbent paper - such as watercolor paper
  • circle cutter - Martha Stewart carries a good one that's sharp and works well
  • fine point Sharpie pens - all the colors you want!
  • cork shelf liner - comes in a roll commonly found at Home Depot and hardware stores
