Make Your Own Glass Tile Jewelry & Gifts
[Editor's Note: Who wouldn’t love to receive one of these gorgeous tile necklaces or magnets? I know I would. Laura from House of Joyful Noise has a great tutorial on her blog for how to make your own. She used floral scrapbooking paper, but the possibilities are endless. Pictures of your kids, letters from magazines in cool fonts, foreign newspaper print – just about anything could be used. - Jen]
Just reading about Laura’s inspiration for this project made me feel warm and fuzzy inside and wish that she was my Facebook friend too: "I enjoyed this project, so much. I created a whole beautiful slew of glass tile necklace pendants, and magnet sets, for 5 women friends I have on Facebook! Long story, but basically it was a ‘pay it forward’ with homemade gifts, sort of thing. The first 5 who wanted gifts from me, and said “Me!”, were to be my gift receivers. So yes, I’ve given everything you see here away, which felt so good!! I smiled at the very idea, of knowing 5 great women friends were going to receive a special package, just because, in their mailbox. Maybe on a day they could use a smile, too. Or maybe, it would make a great day they were having, even better. "
