Hello! Today I have a project plus a little tutorial for you - but this is such an easy craft that you would be able to work it out for yourself I think! ^_^
I printed out some of my Instagram photos today to make into magnets, which is very simple to do. The two A4 magnetic sheets from Riot have a sticky side, so all I had to do was peel off the protective paper, stick down my photos, and then cut them out.
Then I used some stamps to decorate them! Going clockwise from the top left, I used some tiny alphabet stamps, a Amy Tangerine roller date stamp (it's very small but it says "enjoy today"), one of the stamps from the "Vintage Office" stamp set (by Cavallini Papers & Co), and the Happy Birthday stamp from the "Owl you need is love" stamp set (from Typo).
I also inked the edges and covered the entire photo with a layer of mod-podge.
Then, I pulled out my old Wacom tablet and experimented with adding handwriting to some of my other photos in Adobe Illustrator. I made them into magnets using them same process as above.
And so what am I going to do with so many magnets?
I'm making cards! All you have to do is cut a couple of slits in a blank card with a scalpel and slip your new photo magnet in. Yay! One of my goals this year is to send out more snail mail, and this way my corespondents have a special present to keep as well ^_^
What do you think? Do you like them? I sure hope you do!
