Waterproof Photo Tiles I used some basic white ceramic tiles (20¢ each) and painted a coat of Mod Podge right onto the glossy part of the tile and laid my photo flat. I let them dry for about an hour, then did another layer of Mod Podge right on top of the photo (it dries clear), followed by three layers of clear lacquer. This project does take a few days since lacquer needs about three hours to dry in-between. They are waterproof, they can be used as coasters.
One Pinner says, "I took their photos, cut them out and glue onto white paper. Then photo copy onto transparency paper (Kinkos for less than a $1), then cut out image and roll it up so that it can fit into the top of a soap bottle. Make sure you have clear soap." Oh my goodness...this is so funny!
Buy a rough surfaced tile from Lowe's (less than a dollar) and mod podge pretty scrapbook paper on it. Then mod podge picture over that. Let dry and wrap with a pretty bow. Easy and cheap! You can also include a small stand to set the tile on. - Cute!
Photo Tile Tutorial -- Graduation Gift? Creator says used floor tiles from Home Depot. They run about 1.00 per tile so it's a really cheap craft. I wouldn't use slate or anything really textured because the lines/texture will come through the photograph. My favorite type of tile to use is the Tavertine tiles.

Make your own coasters- 4x4 tiles ($.16 Home Depot); 4x4 scrapbook paper; adhere to tile with Mod Podge and let dry; Spray a coat of clear spray paint and let dry; attach felt pads to the bottom. Great Christmas gift idea!
