Ceramic Tile Magnents
These were something that Madelyn and I did together as out Geo-Caching trades. When you geo-cache and you take something form the Cache you much leave something. So, we took these 2x2 ceramic tiles and stamped images from the Very Punny SU stamp set. Once dry we painted the images with ceramic/glass paint. Then, once that was dry we put a sealer top coat over the tile. Madelyn placed the magnent on the back and bagged up the tiles. Each time comes with a business card of sorts with our geocache name etc on it along with a matching stamped image colored in Bic Mark It markers.
I also made a photo box of sorts to practice taking better photos along with editing. Here is the link that I found that helped me out:
