Photo Coasters

Well, I finally got around to making coasters for our living room with all my sweet babies pictures on them.  I think they turned out really nice.
 
There was a sun glare when I took these so the lines from the paint brush showed up a bit.  Normally, you can't see the lines whatsoever.

If you missed the tutorial on how to make your own coasters using tile, you can find it here.  Instead of using scrapbook paper, use a picture of your choice.  Cut the picture down to the size of the tile.  Since the pictures were glossy, I used Gloss Mod Podge.  This was super easy!  I could kick myself for purchasing the clear glass tiles (that you insert a picture into) from the department stores a couple years ago.  Those cost $9 plus the cost of my pictures.  These wonderful floor tiles transformed into photo coasters cost me $1 for four tiles!  I have 200 more tiles to use up.  Many coaster gifts in my future!

  1. Question: Should you make a copy of the original picture? I think this is a great idea, especially for Mother's Day...

  2. Thanks Mary!

    Deb-I had my digital pictures made at Sam's and used those. You definitely want an extra copy versus your original. You could even put it in black and white or sepia for a nice touch. I completely agree this would be a great gift for Mother's Day or do one for Father's Day for the Dad's desk!

  4. I love this too! Andrew was even looking and thought they were really cool! And my hubby has some of those exact tiles. Looks like a trip to wal-mart to print pics and get some mod podge :)
