It's Your Anniversary!

Hello Krafters!

Spring/summer is known as Wedding Season! My girlfriend celebrated her one year wedding anniversary in May. I am so proud of how much she has grown and matured during this year as a wife. As a gift, I wanted to make them something special. I asked for ideas on a forum and Gina linked a picture of a tile her friend Tracy did. I have done my fair share of tiles, but nothing like this! I was instantly drawn to it and decided that was the perfect gift! So this project was lifted from Tracy.

This is a 6.5”x6.5” tile I purchased at a home improvement store. I printed a picture of them on their wedding day (it is my favorite) on tissue paper. I decided to use a color photo because it popped more off of the tile. I cut the letters in vinyl using my Cameo. I used Mod Podge to adhere the photo and to seal the tile. Once it was dry, I tied some tulle around the tile and glued on a curly rose from I Am Roses along with a spray I had in my stash.

So they can showcase their tile, I put together an easel which is a Silhouette Studio file. I could not believe how easy it is to put together AND how sturdy it is! A tile is NOT light! One of the best purchases to date J

I hope you enjoyed today’s project! It was fun to make! Thanks for stopping by, Krafthead~
