Framed for Mama

Mama can always use another framed picture of her adorable baby. Home depot has great tumbled marble tiles that look like something out of ancient Rome. They come in a package of two and are made for 2' tile inserts, but we can never use something for which it is designed, can we?

Materials:
4" x 4" tumbled marble tiles (2 for under $6 - HD)
vertical badge ID holders (Staples)
photos
liquid nails, goop or E-6000 glue

Tools:
scissors
iron


Type child's name or a sentiment on your computer and reverse it. (Important!) I used Photoshop with "Capitals" as the type font. Print it out on the computer and then print it on a copy machine. (Important!) Place the inked side on the smoothest part of the frame and iron with a very hot iron. Hold the paper in place (you might even want to tape it) and iron. Hold one side and carefully lift the other side to see if the type has transferred. If not, place back down and continue to iron. (Don't be alarmed if the paper scorches). It may not completely transfer but that adds to the antique look.
Place the photo inside a badge holder, trimming to fit if necessary. Adjust the holder until the photo shows through the tile opening. Cut the excess plastic off of the top of the holder. Glue the holder to the back of the tile. Surprise Mama.
Tips:

It is important to print the names backwards and on a copy machine. Computer prints will not transfer.
Practice transferring a name on the back of one of the frames if you wish.
These tiles are too heavy to glue a hanger on the back so my suggestion is to lean them on a shelf or mantle.
It might be fun to print pictures in sepia for an even older look.
