5 MINUTES FAUX MARBLE COASTERS (DIY)

http://www.francinesplacediy.blogspot.it/2016/03/5-minutes-faux-marble-coasters-diy.html

Make marbled coasters in 5 minutes! // Realizzate sottobicchieri marmorizzati in 5 minuti!

I love marble, it's so elegant and timeless.
A simple marble detail can change the whole room.
But let be honest: marble is expensive and unless we are (very) rich we can't cover our house with it (sigh!).
Anyway, there is a way to have your beloved marble object without spending a fortune:
the marbled paper!
I'm a little obsessed (here and here for an idea of what I'm talking about) but I don't care,
because I like too much!
So I use it everytime I can, for these coasters, for example.
Read below how I made them in 5 minutes (really!) and spending only 4 € for the paper.

Amo il marmo, è così elegante e senza tempo.
Un semplice dettaglio in marmo può cambiare un'intera stanza.
Ma siamo oneste, il marmo è costoso e, a meno che non siamo ricche, non possiamo usarlo
in tutta la nostra casa (sigh!).
Tuttavia, c'è un modo per avere l'oggetto di marmo che desiderate senza spendere una fortuna:
la carta marmorizzata!
Io ne sono giusto un po' ossessionata (qui e qui un'idea di ciò che dico) ma non mi importa,
mi piace troppo!
La uso ogni volta che posso, come per questi sottobicchieri, ad esempio.
Leggete sotto come li ho fatti in 5 minuti (davvero!) e spendendo solo 4 € per la carta.

You need // Vi occorre:

You'll only need a piece of cardboard, adhesive marbled paper, scissors, pencil and ruler.
//
Vi servirà solo del cartone, carta marmorizzata adesiva, righello, matita e forbici.


How to // Come procedere:

1)
Draw and cut a squared piece of cardboard with 9 cm (3,5 in) side. // Disegnate e ritagliate
un quadrato di cartone con lato di 9 cm.


2)
Draw on the back of your paper an other square, 13 cm (5,1 in) side, then cut it. //
Disegnate sul retro della carta un altro quadrato, 13 cm di lato, poi ritagliatelo.


3)
Detach the adhesive paper, then place the cardboard so that each angle of the little square
is on the half of one side of the bigger one. // Staccate la carta adesiva, poi posizionate
il cartone in modo che ogni angolo del quadrato più piccolo sia sulla metà di un lato 
del quadrato più grande.


 4)
Fold the angles and paste them on the carton. // Piegate gli angoli ed attaccateli sul cartone.


5)
Et voilà! You have done! // Et voilà, avete fatto!

  2. YES! This is fantastic. I've been wanting some for myself but don't feel like spending too much money (especially since I know these will start feeling dated soon enough)
