She needed a housewarming gift for her who is younger and single. Hmm...once we got to talking a lot of gifts are geared towards couples, family and so on when trying to find a housewarming gift. So we decided something about friendship suited her friend the best!
I don't have before pic. Oops! See what happens when you get busy creating! But I used a neutral toned ceramic tile found at Lowe's.
I created a custom Up Words & On Words vinyl design and cut it using my large vinyl plotter. Unfortunately~the Silhouette only cuts 8.5" wide so it's just easier to create one 11" by 11" piece and use my larger cutter when using all one color. I design and create A LOT of tile similar to this. It really isn't a new idea. But each one turns out uniquely it's own!
So here it is:
Because the tile is so heavy, I suggest displaying it with a plate stand. But~I have been asked numerous times how they can be hung on the wall. I have created tiles to hang on the wall. I use modge podge on the back and applied a cork backing. You can sandwich a ribbon in between or use adhesive backed metal hooks and apply those directly to the cork.
Here are a few other tiles I have created designs for:
And of course...I can't find the pictures I was looking for so these few will have to do!
