Embellished cork coasters are a personal, practical hostess gift, protecting tables from guests' frosty glasses. Create stripes with masking tape and initials with vinyl letters. With a stencil brush, apply craft paint; let it dry; then remove tape or letter. Tie together with ribbon, and give with a bottle of booze.
