Valentine's Photo Tiles

Need a cute Valentine's gift for your husband or grandma? This make the perfect gifts and they are so EASY to make.
You will need:
A ceramic tile, I used 6x6 for this project
A digital scrapbook layout printed, I created mine using Picnik. You can follow my tutorial here.
Foam Brush
Mod Podge

First create your page, using my tutorial or you own digital scrapbook software. Print the page onto cardstock and trim. I had a LOT of trouble printing my collage from Picnik, so I downloaded it and printed it with Picasa.
Mod podge your layout to the tile, by applying a thin layer of mod podge to the tile, placing your layout down and smoothing out any air bubbles. Then applying a layer of mod podge to the top of the layout as well.
My biggest tip is to use CARDSTOCK, or if you are stubborn like me, you can use paper and then have to peel it off the tile when it tears and bubbles...twice.
