Holiday Gift Idea

The holidays are right around the corner and I'm always trying to figure out gift ideas in advance so that I don't have to rush. Angie Wagner who is on the Creative Team at Designer Digitals shared a great project that I thought you might like to see. She uploaded a sample in the gallery last year and I knew immediately that I wanted to give it a try. It was so simple and made for some great gifts last year.

I bought a plain cream (or white) tile that was 6 inches by 6 inches. The tile cost less than a dollar. I purchased Mod Podge which is a sealer.
I printed out one of my 12 x 12 layouts to fit this tile. I'm guessing it was 5.75 x 5.75 inches. I placed the photo onto the tile and then brushed the Mod Podge over the top. I did three coats and let the tile sit over night inbetween coats.

I did one for each of the kids with my favorite layout from that year. I purchased little easels for them and that was it. I gave them to their grandparents. It was such a simple project. You certainly wouldn't need to do a layout that includes pictures. There are so many great products in the store, you could easily create something beautiful for a kitchen or a bathroom.

If you are looking for a gift idea, I promise you that it doesn't get any easier than this. Here is Amelia's tile from last year.

I hope you are having a great week. Thanks for stopping by!
