Instructions

Do you like to play Scrabble? Do you have a game that is missing some letters? Recycle the ones you have into fun accessories for yourself and your fridge. These also make great gifts since you can personalize the earrings or pendant by using the initials of the recipient or you can spell out their name or words with the magnets.  
 
 If you are adding images :
5/8 inch square punch or scissors for punching or cutting the images. The tiles are 7/8 inch.
Mat acrylic gel medium and a brush for gluing on images
 
1) If you would like to decorate the backs of your tiles, select your images and punch or cut them out so they are smaller than the tile. 
 
2) Brush the underside of the image with gel medium, glue onto the BACK of your tile, then brush the top of the image and tile with more gel medium. Let dry for 15 minutes.
Brush glue onto the top of the image twice more, letting dry for 15 minutes between each time.
 
3) Using E6000, glue the bale onto the BACK of the tile so it is centered. Let dry.
 
4) Attach the ear wires to the bales according to the type you are using.
