Peace cork coaster

We use a lot of coasters at our house because we have a lot of wood furniture.  We have fun Disney coasters with characters from Florida and serious leather coasters with camels (of course!) from Egypt.  Today we made these custom coasters that have the word Peace written in Arabic on them.  It's the same image that is on my Peace pins that I sell.

Carbon paper
Printed out image
Black sharpie
Silver marker
Tracing tool

If your cork is one piece, you'll need to cut it into 4x4 sizes.  We found this cork already cut into the size we need.  Put your cork coaster down, with the carbon paper on top and the image on top of both.  Use the tracing tool to draw out your design.

Take you silver pen (you might need to shake it to get the ink to come out) and draw out your desgin.

Using the black sharpie, outline your design so you can see it.

Do the same with the other three pieces of cork and enjoy your drink during suhoor or iftar with your custom coaster!
