Start making those beautiful handmade gifts for the Holidays! We all know once the Holidays hit things get so crazy we don’t know if we are coming or going! Right? My hope is to inspire you NOW with creative projects that will be of great help during your holiday gift planning. One gift that is truly NO Fail are the Tiles. You cannot screw up these gifts! Promise. In fact, my 6 year old can do these with her eyes closed. They are also inexpensive! Check out this fun tile I made this week:
I started this project with a 6×6 tile from Lowes. They are usually around 88 cents a tile. Here are the following products I used:
Glassy Glaze Page 188 (100477) 4.75 (approx 12 tiles per jar)
Vintage Ornaments 1 Stencils (117580) 14.95 (4 stencils per package)
Chocolate Chip 1 1/4 Striped Grosgrain Ribbon (115617) 8.95 (butt load of ribbon)
Jumbo Brads Pewter (108432) 9.95 (60 per package)
Pretties Kit (109114) 29.95 (Lots and Lots of pretties in there!)
Chocolate Chip CRAFT ink (101816) 7.50

Adding Stencil Paste:
Once your tile is COMPLETELY cool, you will add the swirly stencil over the glazed ornament on your tile. I use STENCIL EASE found at Hobby Lobby. It’s a BIG tub for 8.99. It’s like Cake Icing. This will bring the cake decorator out in you. Place the stencil onto the ornament and put the Stencil Paste onto the tile. Let this dry anywhere from 1-2 hours. Time varies. Once this is dry, take another sponge dauber and lightly go over the dried stencil paste with a classic ink. It’s so beautiful once they are complete. Again, these are fast, easy and affordable. If you need the supplies, just go to my Online Store by clicking on the right and punch in the numbers above for your convience.
I’m also in the process of making a video of the stencil paste. Very LONG overdue. Don’t get too excited. My videos are nothing like the fancy ones you see else where. LOL! However, the goal is to show you how fun and easy the product is to use with our AMAZING stencils.
Time for me to talk to my fake audience again. I have 50 Stuffed Animals lined up ready to hear my convention speech. They don’t talk back and just stare crazy at me. Quite entertaining on my part.
Have a fab day!
