Check out the full post on the Francois Et Moi blog!

  • Skill: Beginner
  • Designer: Erin Francois

Needed Materials, Tools, and Surfaces

  • 5 Wood Coasters
  • Sheet of Craft Foam
  • Scissors
  • Pen
  • Glue Stick
  • Outdoor Craft Paint
  • Loew-Cornell® Fine Sponge Dabber
  • SIMPLY ART® Paint Brushes

Step by Step Instructions

  1. Begin by painting 4 of the coasters a contrasting base color such as white. Set aside to dry.
  2. Then trace the round shape of one of the coasters onto your craft foam sheet. Free hand draw the inner workings of citrus fruit, including the seeds!
  3. Then cut out the shapes.
  4. Use a glue stick to adhere the shapes onto the wood side of the extra coaster.
  5. Next transfer paint onto your new stamp with a sponge dabber. Use enough paint to really cover the foam shapes, but not so much that the paint puddles when stamped.
  6. Line up the stamp with the coaster and stamp away.
  7. Lastly add the “rind” to your citrus fruit with a thick paint line around the perimeter of the coaster.
