Over at Infarrantly Creative, I showcased my completely customizable, alterable, changeable, magic holiday board. (But we’ll just call it the Holiday Board for short.) And I thought I'd repost the tutorial here for your enjoyment!
Now, gently pat it down - especially over those wrinkles and such. Just press gently with your fingertips, and don’t rub too much.
- When taping the tissue paper to the computer paper, make sure you tape all around the edges. You don’t want the tissue paper to peel up anywhere because it could cause a major printer jam which means spending a naptime turning your printer upside down and tearing it apart - don’t worry, that only happened once. When I was in a hurry.)
- Personal Opinion: Matte podge looks best on natural tile, glossy podge on smooth tile.
- If you use smooth tile, think about cutting the tissue paper the exact size of the tiles - instead of leaving a “tile border” around the design. The tissue paper wrinkles up, you know, and I think it looks better if the whole tile is “wrinkly” than if part of it is smooth.
- And for those of you who are worried about those little velcro strips - I’ve had my tiles up since before Thanksgiving, and they are still going strong - no problems. (This note is mainly for my sister. See, they’re all good.)
- Check ReStore, Craig’s List, Thrift Stores or the clearance section of your local hardware stores for cheap, cheap tiles. They may not match, but that doesn’t always matter.
Oh, yes, and of course, I can't commit to just ONE thing. And this way, I don't have to.
