Tile Gift for 2 different challenges & mini tutorial

Today im sharing with you a Tile I made for 2 different challenges!!
1st challenge is the Inspiration Challenge on SCS.

2nd challenge is the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge.

As many of you know my hubby and I have been out of work since the beginning of Aug. So this Christmas ive had to get really creative and try to come up with some Christmas gifts to give. Well this is one , I will be making some coasters to match this, and im giving this set to my brother and his wife Melina.

To start you will want to stamp with staz on black ink, then bake for 20 minutes on 350 in the oven.

Let cool then add your stickles and embellish!!!

Side is covered with trim, I glued it on with the hot glue gun!!!

Now the back is covered with felt, and then I added a loop of ribbon to hold the pen (still need to buy the pens) lol

then I added a bow to cover the loop!!

NOTE: everything is glued on with a HOT GLUE GUN!! :)

And here is my tile finished!!! Thank goodness!!!LOL
Hope you enjoyed this little tutorial on how to cover a tile!!! :)
Have a wonderful weekend!!
