Life for our little family has been, well, pretty crazy to say the least.
Between Andy's car trouble,
a major family sickness where we were all flat in bed for a week,
catching up on Isaac's missed school work,
our fish jumping out of his bowl :-(,
getting a new fish,
Primary President Responsibilities (for our church),
and just trying to keep up with everyday life,
there has not been a whole lot of extra time for blogging.
I am now back and just in time to tell you about
March's Craft Group!
I hosted this month, and we all made four Tile Pictures/stamped Coaster's.
These were so fun and easy to make.
All of the ladies did such a great job, They all just really turned out so cute. I would show all of them, but this post is already going to be so long. So, here are just a few of the finished Coasters:
Here are the instructions on how to make these fun Coasters:
Tile Picture Coasters:
- 4" x 4" Tumbled Tile (Wipe down with a damp cloth to remove any dust and let dry completely)
- Tissue Paper
- Mod Podge®
- Foam brush
- 4” x 4” Cork
- Permanent glue
- Stamp (optional)
- StazOn®(permanent inkpad)
- Acrylic Sealer
Cut a piece of tissue paper and tape it to a regular sheet of paper. (This way it will feed through the printer.)
Print picture on tissue paper and trim to fit tile.
Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge™ to tile.
Place picture on the tile.
Apply another thin coat of Mod Podge™ over picture and then let dry.
Ink stamp with Stazon™, and stamp on tile. Let dry, then cover entire tile with another layer of Mod Podge.
After letting the Mod Podge™ dry completely, spray with acrylic spray, following directions on can.
After tile is completely dry, turn it over and apply permanent glue to one side of the cork square.
Attach cork glue side down to the back of the tile and press down firmly.
Let the glue dry and enjoy your coaster!
We also had some 'Girly' food:
-Papa Murphy's Garlic Chicken Pizza
-Fruit and Poppy Seed Salad(found here)
-Mint Brownies(found here)
As always we had a really great time talking, eating, and crafting. I LOVE craft group :-)
