It is Friday and time for another Bloggers Challenge! The theme this week is Alter it! Well…I think everyone knows this is one of my favorite themes. I’ve been holding off on sharing these until this week.
At the Stampin’ Up! Convention, they showed how to make beautiful magnet boards showcasing our gorgeous Designer Paper! After Convention, our group does a Round Up meeting and shows the other members in our downlines what we learned at Convention. I focused on this project and made the following magnet boards for my home.
The first one uses one of the Large On Board Book Basics that I painted with Chalkboard Paint. This is available at your local hardware store in the spray paint area. It is in a pint sized can, but inside a box if you are looking for it. Runs about $21. It took 2 coats to get covered and you need to have them shake it and use it right away, or spend some time stirring up the magnetic particles from the bottom settling of the can.
I stamped some Game Day images on Whisper White and cut them to 1" size, then adhered them to Scallop Square punches. There is a strong magent on the back of each of them. I cut the Let’s Play with the Big Shot and Stampin’ Up!’s exclusive Timeless Type dies and Real Red Cardstock. I added a strip of Jackpot Designer Paper, layered on So Saffron cardstock along the left side and some 5/8 Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon. I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch two holes in the top of the decorated On Board and added additional 5/8 Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon for a hanger. The back is also covered with Jackpot Designer Paper. Wouldn’t this be great to put a note on reminding everyone of the time for Game Night or your sports schedule?
The second one, I actually found a square 9×9 metal sign that was flat on the front. I rounded the corners and used Sticky Strip to adhere the Tall Tales Designer Paper to the front. Can you see the animal magnets? I cut out the animal/tree images from the Tall Tales Designer Paper pattern and laminated them to keep them from getting torn. Then I placed a heavy magnet on the back with Crystal Effects. I added some magnets to the back of a couple Designer Buttons, too. The sign already had hangers on the back, so I tied on the 1" Rose Red Double-Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon to them to make the hanger. Wouldn’t this be cute in a kid’s room?
Those are my two altered projects for this week! Hope you like them!
