Thinking outside the box- tiles

Hey Chickies!

I hope you're having a great week!  I know I am!  Our family welcomed another little man on Monday morning!  My baby brother, his wife and their daughter, Maddy, welcomed Thomas Gregory!

I love this little guy!
K, back on subject...

Lately, I've been making a lot of coasters out of 4"x4" travertine tiles.  They are sooo fun to make!  I'll be giving a lot of them as holiday gifts this year!

So...if it's ok to use travertine tiles for coasters instead of just floors and backsplashes...why not signs???

Y'all know how much I love me some signs!!!

So...I used the same concept and method as I do for my coasters, adding a couple little something specials and made these...

They make the sweetest little accents!  You can put them on an easel or on a shelf with your favorite photos.

Wanna try making your own? 

You will need:
4"x4" travertine tiles
scrapbook paper of your choice
Mod Podge
sponge brushes (for application of ModPodge)
vinyl text of your choice
burlap (for rosebud...optional)

Don't forget to come back and show me what you came up with!
