Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Identify What You Liked About Today And Build On It Tomorrow!What did you like about today? Did you eat one healthy snack? Did you spend a half hour creating? Did you tell someone you love how much you appreciate them? Did you talk on the phone with someone without multi-tasking? Whatever you did today that you liked, consider how you can build on it tomorrow! I feel the same way about my art. The other day I made magnets out of card stock and chipboard and really enjoyed it. Today I found myself wondering how I could build on the idea. Specifically, as I walked the dog I wondered "how can I make the magnets more durable - especially in the kitchen?" Fun Foam came to mind! So today I decided to make a gift for a friend building on my experience from the other day and these fun foam magnets were the result!
I die cut the thin fun foam pieces with the Big Shot and used hot glue to adhere everything together. I even snuck a piece of ribbon in between the layers :) You can't see the back of the magnet, but one little tip I have for you is to cut a 3/4" circle from plain copy paper and adhere it to the back of your magnet. This helps prevent the magnets from scratching surfaces or leaving black residue on surfaces. Here is a picture of the full magnet set (the last name of my friend) and a close up of one of the magnets. I hope you like them!
