Tiles for Every Season

I have a Tile/Coaster Class coming up in a couple of weeks and this is one of the design options they'll have. I got inspiration from these coasters by Meg Loven.

These are so easy to make and are great for personal use or as a gift. To start, you just need some natural, unfinished tiles that can be purchased at any Home Improvement Store. I've used 4" x 4" tiles here. Wipe them down with a wet cloth to remove any dust. Next, you'll need some Craft Ink to do the stamping. StazOn Ink would work as well. Finally, pick your stamp set and stamp away. Once you've finished stamping, spray them 2-3 times with a Clear Acrylic Spray (I use Krylon.) When dry, apply felt tabs to the bottom.

Voila! The options are endless. Weddings, Anniversaries or Birthdays are just a few occasions you could tie a ribbon around a set of these and give as a gift.

Stampin' Up now sells their Craft Ink in the Stampin' Spots. These are little mini stamp pads. You can purchase them as a set for each of the (4) Color Collections. That's 10 different colors per set. That's a great deal!

Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for stopping by!
