Group your hearts and set the setting for cut and engrave.

First i started with the walnut cut and then did the same with the basswood cut.

After those were cut, I moved the image a side in XCS, and placed the same size outer heart on the grid and placed the felt into the machine to cut.

Step5: Putting the coasters together

Once the basswood and walnut hearts are cut, i placed them together, by switching 1 row of walnut and then 1 row of basswood etc etc. and do the same with the basswood.

Put glue on each heart piece to stick on the felt, till all pieces are stuck on the felt.

The coasters are now finished. I did put a layer of clear polyurethane spray on it for protection.
