Last minute gift ideas

If your looking for some last minute gift ideas these are perfect!!  Personalize some tiles with family photos!  Here are some I did a couple years ago:

1. I turned my photos into Black/White and scale down to size.
2. Print your photos onto tissue paper  (this can be tricky).  You need to tape the tissue paper onto a piece of thicker card stock when you run it through your printer.
3.  Apply just a thin layer of  Mode Podge to the tile and lay down your picture. Smooth it out very carefully.
4.  I let it dry a bit before applying Mod Podge over the top of your tile.
5.  Add felt circles to the bottom and your done! (=
(I did add some sentiment stamps to the top tiles)

If your looking for something even easier try stamping on tiles!!

Those are adorable. I did something like this on small tiles that had magnets on the back, but this is a great idea for coasters for Grandma and Grandpa!
