All That Scraps Wednesday.....Decorative Magnets!
Hello Everyone and Happy Wednesday!
This weeks All That Scraps Challenge is to make a decorative project using magnets!
I have all kind of magnets laying at my house and the first thing that came to mind was to make a decorative refrigerator magnet. I used a sheet magnet for my project and the size is about "X" and it is very strong.
My project was simple to make and now that I have the hang of it, I plan to make a few more. After coloring Love Lolita Pumpkin, I trimmed her and then matted her onto black card stock and trimmed my image a second time. I applied thin pop dots to the backside of my image and carefully adhered her to the sentiment area. The sentiment is from an older package of SU Halloween rub ons and I embellished the sentiment area with a spider and a trio of black buttons.
Initially I had wanted to take a picture of my project on my refrigerator but the skies were gray and lighting in my kitchen was terrible. I ended up placing my project against a metal shelf in my craft room and this worked out OK. *note... for the first photo, I placed some black card stock against an upright metal tin and then placed my refrigerator magnet on the card stock. My refrigerator is black and if my pictures would have come out right, this is basically what my project would have looked like on my fridge.*
