DIY: How To Create Your Own Map Coasters

In August 2016, the Juneberry ‘Travel’ Box was released. As a part of the box contents, a DIY kit was included. This tutorial will cover the necessary steps to create your own map coasters. Don’t worry, it’s easy!

To complete your coasters, you will need:

  • Maps
  • Coasters (they don’t have to be blank, but blank works better!)
  • Glue
  • Paintbrush
  • Pencil
  • Scissors

Note: If you are using very thick glue, it is recommended that you mix your glue with a little bit of water prior to this tutorial.

Step 1
To begin, trace your coasters onto your maps using a pencil. Trace as many coaster shapes as you need.

Step 2
Cut out your tracings from the map using scissors until you have an equal amount of map pieces and coasters.

Step 3
Apply a layer of glue using a paintbrush to your coaster (apply to the side that will be facing up), and then carefully place a map piece on top. Press out any bubbles by starting from the center and working your way to the edges.

Step 4
When you’re happy with how the map is placed, apply another layer of glue to the top of your coaster. This will protect the paper from damage. If you are using very thin layers, it is recommended that you apply another after it has dried.

Step 5
Wait until your coaster is completely dry before using! Voila, beautiful map coasters!

June Theme Reveal: In Bloom

Juneberry Box June 2015 Box Theme Reveal

At the beginning of each box month (every two months), we’ll reveal the theme we used to choose all of the surprises in the box for that month!

In celebration of the launch of Juneberry Box, we decided it would only be fitting to use the theme ‘In Bloom’. For anyone who is unaware, a juneberry is a type of berry that grows in North America. As the Juneberry Box brand grows, we’ll be encouraging our Junebugs (aka subscribers) to grow with us! More info
