Need a REALLY Quick Gift???

Do you have hard to buy for people on your list? Do you break out into hives when their birthday rolls around? Well, here is a fasssssssssst, cute and thoughtful gift you can make and give.

This project was for my Fast and Furious challenge at the recent Scrap Shotz online crop. It was Photo Tile Coasters. The finished project looks like this...

And this is how you make the photo tile coasters.

First select the photos you would like on your tiles. This is the most time consuming part (I swear!) Resize your photos to fit on the files and do a test print on some paper.

Then print the pictures onto tissue paper. Trim the tissue paper image to the size of the tile.

Apply some Mod Podge to the tile. Layer the tissue paper image on top of the Mod Podge. Apply another coat of Mod Podge to the tissue paper image. The Mod Podge will dry clear.

Let dry. Spray with acrylic sealer to water proof the coaster. I also added some cork to the bottom of my tile. Furniture felt pads work equally well.

Thanks for dropping by!
