STEP 1: Paint the edges of the agate coasters with liquid gold leaf and let it dry completely.
STEP 2: In large cursive letters, take your gold metallic marker and mark each agate with the name of each guest.
STEP 3: Place a small dab of superglue onto each magnet. Careful not to glue your fingers! Glue a magnet onto the back of each agate.
STEP 4: Now take your plywood and sheet metal. Paint a layer of primer, then a layer of white paint. Repeat the same process for the sheet metal. Let both dry.
STEP 5: Take your industrial glue and apply a line of glue along the edges. Adhere the sheet metal on top of the painted plywood.
STEP 6: Attach your magnetized agate coasters, and organize the board with your gold marker. Add a fun title, table numbers, maybe even an inspiring quotation or two!
Beautiful, personal, and elegant, and a great souvenir for your guests to take home! After the festivities have ended, make sure to send them a thank you postcard inspired by these amazing agates!
