These adorable personalized photo tile coasters take only minutes to make and the customization options are truly endless!
I know one lucky great-grandma who is going to love seeing all these smiling little faces along with her morning coffee! I chose to use black and white photos just because I wanted them to have a bit more contrast with the gorgeous Violet Garden patterned papers, but color photos would look nice as well.
Along with the Violet Garden Paper Pack, I used Print Candee’s Assorted Labels (as frames) to create a 4.25” layout in Photoshop where I also layered in the children’s’ photos. Print your designs on to cardstock, cut and trim to fit your tiles. I used the most basic plain white tile that I could find at my local big box hardware store, and it was actually 4.25” though it was labeled as 4” tile.
Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to your tile and glue down your designs, being careful to smooth out any air bubbles. Allow to dry for at least 30 minutes and then top with 3 additional coats of Mod Podge (again allowing at least 30 minutes of drying time between coats). Finish up with a coat or two of acrylic spray sealer, and glue a thin layer of cork or felt to the back of each tile to protect your table surfaces.
Now go run out to the hardware store for some $.16 tiles, choose your favorite papers and clip art, and start checking names off of your holiday gift list!
