I have 17 kids and I decided to have each kid make 3. It was affordable and they turned out super cute.
tiles (I picked mine up at Home Depot)
modge podge or Elmer's all purpose if you are cheap like me
paper (either photos, pretty paper, or paper to draw on)
I first cut out paper, slightly smaller than my tile and had the kids draw pictures on them. If you are doing this from one adult to another, you would just cut out your pictures or pretty paper to the correct size. Then you paint your glue on the blank tile.
Place the picture in the center of your tile, and coat again with glue. Do a fairly thick layer and be sure that you get the edges really well. You can see from the picture below how white it will look. It dries clear, so don’t worry.
Just let them dry, then spray with clear acrylic spray to seal them and make them waterproof.
They really looked impressive, and if I hadn’t already started making other presents for friends, I would have made adult versions of these for them.
Bam! Impressive keepsakes.
