Works in progress - Bamboo Tiles/Dominoes

I haven't been able to do a single bit of crafting today - but I have not been idle - I have been working on these for a few days on and off. Still a long way to go yet until they are finished.

I have some lovely images on CD - Vintage of course - so I just had to use them - but trying to resize one by one was a nightmare!

You would have laughed if you had seen my final attempt - cutting and pasting them into word, then reducing them and measuring them on the screen with a ruler - so time consuming!

The Christmas ones I am going to turn into tree decorations I think

Here are some works in progress - which have had to be left for 24 hours after their last coat of Shellac. I still have the reverse sides to do.

Sorry that the photos are a bit rubbish - its the glare from the foiling - should have waited until daylight.

I will remember to take them in sunshine - if we get any - when they are finished with all their dangly bits.

Some people call them tiles sometimes people advertise them as bamboo dominoes - but whatever you call them - they are adorable little bits of wood to alter.
