Hybrid Tile Décor Step by Step

During the month of May the Candy Wrapper (Hybrid) Challenge at GingerScraps was to make a Hybrid Tile of some kind. I finished my tiles up right at the end of the moth and thought I would share them here with you all!

These are pretty easy to make, as long as you are not afraid of Mod Podge!

Here are the steps..

1. measure your tile

2. open a new file in your photo editing program the size of your tile.

3. Design your LO/Artwork for your tile

4. Print on matte photo paper (You can use tissue paper too, but I was afraid to try it)

5. trim the edges of your printed piece

6. ModPodge it to your tile, I like to paint the modpodge to the tile a little bit at a time and smooth it down real good to prevent bubbles. If you get a bubble here is a trick, I have a little Baker's Roller from Pampered Chef (I sell PC) The small side works great for smoothing out the bubbles. I’m sure there is some sort of crafting tool that does this, but I’m a use what you’ve got type girl! Let it dry for about 15 minutes.

7. add more layers of Modpodge on top. Let each coat dry before you put on another coat. I know I hate to wait for drying time too, but if you don’t wait you will get bubbles. You can ink the edges too if you like that look, I did on my second one.

8. Display and enjoy Smile

I made two of them, this first one will be displayed at my daughter and nephews Graduation party this Friday.
