Tile Coasters

Hi my crafty friends!! :)
I made these awesome tile coasters for my friend at work and I thought I'd show them off to you all to give you a great idea for Christmas.  I have made coasters before, but never PICTURE coasters.  Thanks, my bbff, Christy for giving me the idea!!!
They are pretty easy.  All you have to do is modge podge the picture to the tile, then spray a coating on the top.  I bought mine at JoAnn's and it was a little pricey, but it is waterproof.  I liked that since they are going to be holding drinks afterall. 
I just tore the edges of the picture to give it kinda a neat effect. 
You can see from the photos that they look a little aged.  that is a cool effect that I got from spraying closely.  I actually redid the little girl one because her face looked distorted.  I like the effect but held it far away the 2nd time I made hers.  A cool thing though is that now her tile looks like it has a double edge around the picture.  That is pretty neat.  I wonder now if  I shouldn't have done that to all of them.  Oh well, he liked them!!!! 
I do too!!
Enjoy your day,

OH, and don't forget the back - I used contact paper cork for mine....just cut it down to size.  3.75x3.75 for these!
