I hope everyone had a great Christmas (or which ever holiday you celebrated)! Here is my gift to scrabble tile images! If you don't know how to use then scroll down and I'll tell ya!
What you need:
* Photo paper (or print these off at Walmart or elsewhere)
* Scissors or 1x1" square hole punch
* Scrabble tiles (1"x1"...yes the ones from the game)
* 3D Crystal lacquer or Envirotex Lite (Mod Podge may work too I haven't tried)
* Glue or Mod Podge
* Jewelry supplies if you want to make a necklace with them.

Step 1: Print these out on photo paper or have them printed off at Walmart, Walgreens, or other another place.

Step 2: Cut each square out, either with scissors or a 1x1" square hole punch if you prefer. I use scissors.

Step 3: Using elmer's glue or mod podge glue the square image onto the scrabble tile and press to make sure it is glued down and will stay.

Step 4: Pour a small drop of your Crystal lacquer or which ever you decided to use onto it and move it around until the entire top is covered evenly. I use my finger to go around the sides if it drips. If you use mod podge, use a sponge brush to paint the image with and use about 5 coats, letting each coat dry for about 20 minutes before applying the next.

Step 5: Lay it down on something to dry. Do not lay on something you dont want ruined just in case it drips while drying. Depending on what you used, you will need to let these dry for atleast 2 hours for 3D Crystal lacquer or 24 hours for et lite. If you use Mod Podge you need to wait 20 minutes in between each coat and then 20 minutes after the final coat for it to dry all the way.

Step 6: If you want to use these as a necklace, you will need to drill a small hole in the top and insert a jump ring and your necklace. Voila! You now should have a scrabble tile necklace!

Once again, sorry no pictures! I will be adding tutorials soon with pics. I just wanted to share how to use these cute images I made just in case some of you dont know how!
