I went out that day and purchased my supplies, 12x12 scrapbook paper in a color and design scheme that would complement our existing decor and two - 1/2 thick pieces of foam board (a piece of styrofoam that has poster board on each side), also purchased some removable gl
ue dots to adhere the paper to the board.
A few stages into the project...
adding a strip from another paper to add some interest to the grunge red paper
then cutting out a floral swirl to finish the embellishment and fit in better with the other tiles
I ended up adding another sheet of 1/2" thick foam to the backs of each to make it stand out more and instead of covering the sides with black paper, I cut our 1" strips from the other sheets of coordinating paper to cover the sides. Here are the pictures of the finished project.
