It's a DIY Christmas - Stamped Porcelain Tile Magnets

To coordinate with the stamped tumbled tile coasters, I also created stamped porcelain tile magnets.

Just like the coasters, these are a quick and easy addition to any kitchen, gift basket or hostess gift.

Sheet of 2 x 2 inch porcelain tiles (36 total tiles)
StazOn Stamping Ink (this is a permanent stamping ink)
All Purpose Adhesive Glue
Magnets (I use 2-1/2 inch magnets per tile)
Rubbing alcohol (to remove the ink in case the stamped images get smudged)

1. Remove tiles from backing. You may need to soak them in water overnight and scrub the backs a bit to loosen the glue.

2. Let tiles completely air dry.

3. Place dry tile in center of your work area.

4. Select your stamp color.

5. Select your stamp.

6. Ink entire image, taking care to wipe off any excess that may have gotten on the edges of the stamp.

7. Line up stamp and press stamp with steady pressure onto tile, making sure to not "jiggle" the image. (If you make a mistake at this point, you can use the rubbing alcohol on a paper towel to remove the ink).

8. Fill in any spaces in the image on the tile with permanent marker of the same color.

9. Let ink dry for 15 to 20 minutes, then place tile onto a cookie sheet and place in oven preheated to 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes.

10. Let cool completely.

11. Apply magnets to back of tile with adhesive. Let dry overnight.

12. Place magnets into an organza bag for gift giving.
