First, gather your materials. You will need:
2. Kraft Board (I used the back piece of a notebook)
3. Scissors
4. Tape
5. Small Awl
6. A work surface that can be damaged (I used a cardboard box)
7. Embroidery Thread
8. Needle

1. gather materials

Once you have gathered your materials, cut out your coaster template.

2. cut out coaster template

Using the template, cut out the coaster from the kraft board.

3. cut out coaster

Securely tape the template to the coaster.

4. tape template to coaster

Use the awl to punch the holes in the coaster. Make sure to do this on a work surface that will not be ruined such as a cutting mat or cardboard, the awl will cause damage to most furniture.

5. punch the holes

Once all the holes are punched, remove the template.

6. remove template

Thread some embroidery thread through your needle and begin stitching your coaster.

7. begin stitching

Stitch as much or as little as you want.
