Just wanted to share with you a little fun and whimsical gift you can whip up really fast for any occasion...
These are Christmas coasters that I am giving to friends, however they are not limited to the holidays and would be very pretty with photos of family or vintage ephemera.
All you need is:
- tumbled tile 4"x4"
- photos or vintage ephemera sized no larger than 3.25"
- self adhesive cork backing cut to 3.25" square
- mod podge (gloss)
- sponge applicator
Adhere photo/ephemera to tile with mod podge, (be sure to eliminate all wrinkles and air bubbles)
Apply mod podge generously over photo/ephemera and the top of the tile surface, let dry
Repeat applications until all edges of photo/ephemera "blend" into tile with no hard edges
When completely dry, apply self adhesive cork backing to bottom of tile
Additional creative tips: try inking or tearing the edges for a vintage or shabby look.
The new year is right around the corner and birthdays are coming up...it never hurts to think outside the box!
I hope you and yours have a Wonderfully Blessed Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!
