After they were fired, I set them into the pre-bought mirror frames with tile glue, and then grouted them in.  A time-consuming project with a lot of steps, but well worth it!

The tiles on this mirror are all from the book Alligator Alphabet; the second mirror drawings came from a book I borrowed from my daughter’s preschool years ago and I can’t recall the title, which is too bad, because the illustrations are hilarious!
