Great Gift Tutorial - 2X2 Tiles

Good Saturday Morning!

I have created a little tutorial for you today. FUN STUFF!

These 2x2 tiles are great with matching recipe cards for recipe holders, I have also given them as gifts for picture holders with a picture I have taken, and they work super around the house as little note holders. FYI, they sold great when I took them to a craft fair around Christmas time, they make great Teacher or Sunday School gifts.

Hope you enjoy them as much as I have!

Tutorial for stamping on 2X2 Tiles

2X2 Tiles - Purchase in large piece from Home Depot or Lowes
Stamps of your choice (That will fit on 2X2 tile) (Here I am using a Flower Flourish from CCS, a time for Prayer, and the Bee from CCS Happy camper)

WHAT YOU NEED:
Scissors
Sharpie Markers
Staz-On Ink
Heat Gun
Clear Embossing Powder
Embossing Buddy
E600 glue
Small binder Clip

1.    Cut tiles from main piece & trim sides
2.    Sand the sides smooth
3.    Clean well
4.    Use embossing Buddy all over tile
5.    Stamp your image with staz-on
6.    Pour embossing powder over image & tap off
7.    Use your heat gun until the image shines
8.    Color image as desired - I used Sharpie...(You can use inks or chalk as well, just  heat set either  with embossing gun or in the oven on 250  degrees for 10 min)
9.    Spread E6000 glue around sides of tile and wrap ribbon around the sides and cut off excess.Embellish now with bling pearls or other embellishments.
10.  CHOICE: You can cover with Diamond Glaze or Spray with Top Coat to seal. (Here I covered with Diamond Glaze)  Be sure to let this dry.

11. Now place your binder clip on back with E6000 glue & let dry.


NOW, GO...look through all your stamps and see what you can come up with! :-)

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that your weekend is full of fun crafty stuff! ;-)(in the picture is my daughter, shes so cute ***hehe***)
