My aunt is visiting and she put me to work! It’s fun making gifts for people, but I do get bored making the same designs again and again, so when she challenged me to make these signs, I was ready to go. A few years back during the ceramic tile mania that swept the forum, I had purchased some 13"x4" tiles. Never used them, and the other day while looking in my closet, I noticed they were still there. My aunt asked me to make her some signs, and immediately I thought about the tiles.
These are meant to hang, so I put a couple of holes in the back braces. I left space between the tiles and the braces for a piece of twine or something else to be put in later, then filled the gap with felt between the brace and tile where the string won’t be affected by it.
The frame isn’t too complicated, there’s the face where everything in the back connects to, the back frame is a pretty close fit around the tile’s perimeter, then the braces so the tile doesn’t fall out.
This was a fun project for sure, and tiles that have been sitting in my closet for three years are now going to be sent away! The slippers on the tile are made from Koa Veneer that has also just been sitting in my closet for a while. Now if only I could do that with some of the scrap pieces of Proofgrade I got with my original sample pack
