Decorative Tiles

The kids and I really enjoy making these decorative tiles, they can be used for coasters
or you can hang them on the wall or use a clothes pin and some wood glue and they can be set up anywhere!
They are so cute, easy and very affordable to make!
Ashtyn and I made a few sets for gifts this year, here's what we did!

Tiles (We got ours from Menard's, you can buy them from any hardware/home store)
Scrapbook Paper
Paper Cutter (Rotary Cutter, scissors)
Mod Podge
Paint Brush
*Gems/Ribbon, ect. Ashtyn likes to decorate hers a little more than just the paper :)

1. Cut out your scrapbook paper to fit the tiles
2. Put a THIN layer of Mod Podge on the tile
(note-- make sure to not use to much or your paper will bubble)
3. Place the scrapbook paper onto the tile rub it until smooth
4. Place a layer of Mod Podge over the entire title.
5. Let dry (if wanted you can decorate with gems/ribbons/ect.
6. Repeat with another layer of Mod Podge
7. Let dry for 30 min.

A few of Ashtyn's finished tiles

Titles that we bought from Menard's

I have found using a roatary cutter and large ruler is the quickest and easist way to do this!

Paint on the mod podge then add your paper, then paint another layer of mod podge!

Press down the paper, get out all those bubbles!

Woala! Finished products! GREAT GIFTS :)
