These tiles can be found at places like Home Depot or your local tiling store, for less than a dollar each. I prefer the tumbled marble tiles for their fun texture and ease of use, but you go with what YOU like.
These were stamped with Stazon ink and coloured in with Sharpies... it was a fun project for kids to work on so I love to feature them whenever I do a workshop with Brownies or Guides. That's when I get to pull out my favourite retired Stampin' Up! kid-holiday stamps, and let them go to town and stamp their little hearts out!
There are a variety of ways to stamp your tiles, so I'd recommend checking out one of the online tutorials, such as the one at Splitcoaststampers.
When I'm done with the stamped top of the tile, I usually flip it over and adhere small cork or felt "feet" with a dab of Crystal Effects. This makes a nice coaster or trivet, and you can wrap a set up as a nice gift, and make a matched tag (or card, or box, or wrapping paper, or bow...hahaha... the list goes on!).
I hope this inspired you to have fun playing with tiles, I know I do!
p.s. If you're wondering what I'm doing up at 3am today, that's okay...so am I. Poor Morgan is running a fever and so I've getting him meds & water, but at least he's sleeping now. Me? not so much :( Let's hope my munchkin's better today.
