Packaged & Posted!

Done at last! I’ve been cutting and trimming, and cutting and trimming, and cutting and trimming! I made over 50 of these teeny tiny treasures and had a blast doing it. I started with mini prints of my paintings that I tweaked in Photoshop. I cut them out using a box knife and then I glued them onto chipboard that I saved from some packaging. Then I used the box knife again and cut them out again. I glued complimenting collaging papers to the backs of each tile and cut them out again… this time with some small super sharp scissors. Next I mod podged them with 3 coats on each side to add strength and a nice coating for the super glossy varnish I used on them. Lastly I painted the edges of each and every time with acrylic paint to make it look more finished and give it a “real” painting look.
These gems are limited only by your imagination… some of the uses I’ve come up for them are:

  • Scrap-booking
  • Charms
  • Do-it-yourself craft projects
  • Decorate your locker…dorm…journal
  • Make flip flop ornaments
  • Turn them into magnets
  • Punch a hole and add earring hooks
  • Transform them into thumbtacks
  • Add them to your artwork
  • Hang them in your doll house
  • Collect them and make a collage
  • Make a greeting card
I’m going to be playing with a few later this week to see what kinds of fun and funky flashy favorites I can come up with. Once I get started I’m sure my imagination will take over and I’ll be left in the dust!
