This is such a fun and practical project! I have made a similar one by modge podge on the underside of a glass plate with fabric showing through to the right side. I could see using fabric with this tray as well, or even wallpaper scraps, especially thicker or textured which would give some nice dimension to the tray. This would make a nice hostess gift, and you could use the same technique for smaller coasters too!
