Tile Pendant Tutorial


I am so glad to be back home after a hectic trip to Texas.  It was wonderful to be able to spend time with my family.  Unfortunately, during our trip we caught the stomach bug and were confined to the house for a couple of days.  Now that I am home and we are all healthy again, I am so excited to get back to blogging!  

Here's a little project I worked on over the weekend.  





Supplies:



To make this pendant I used Fragment from the Tim Holtz collection.  Fragments are hard acrylic tiles that come in several different sizes.  The package I purchased had 48 tiles and was around $6 using a coupon at Michael's.







You will also need Glossy Accents from Ranger.  This can also be purchased at Michael's.


TO MAKE:

1.  Place a thin coat of Glossy Accents on one side of a tile and firmly press a piece of scrapbook paper to the tile holding tightly until dry.

2.  Trim the paper around the tile.

3.  Place a thin layer of Glossy Accents on the backside of the tile completely covering the paper.  Allow to dry overnight.

4.  Using E-6000, glue a bail onto the tile.


These acrylic tiles are great gifts for little girls!



Add a rub-on or sticker to personalize the pendant.

The possibilities are limitless!

  2. They are really cute. Where did you get a bail? I guess I am not very smart about jewelry things. Joan@anythinggoeshere
