Now I'd like to share my Spring inspired project with you!!



I used the cool new weScrap kit that is now available to buy: Late Nights



Photobucket



I took apart the Basic Grey Chipboard Album and made some fun magnets for my fridge!



Gather up your supplies:

Chipboard Shapes

Patterned Paper

ribbon, buttons, pins

stamps

adhesives

ink

scissors

alphas

magnets (purchased at the dollar store)

Photobucket


1. Trace your shape onto your patterned paper and cut out. Adhere to the chipboard using liquid adhesive. (I used Zip Dry). You must use a good liquid adhesive because you are going to hang them on your fridge and gravity will come to be your enemy. Ink the edges if desired.

2. Add some coordinating paper to your project and your photo. Adhere where desired.



3. Time to embellish it with some ribbons, buttons, pins, flowere.... whatever you would like to use.



4. I used the white ribbon that is included in this kit and sprayed it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Tattered Leather. Once it was dry I stamped some words on to it and attached it to Paige's layout.

5. I used alcohol inks on the acrylic letters and attached them to the magnets. **As seen on the CCAS Blog.



6. Not use your strong liquid adhesive and attach your magnet to the back of the chipboard.



VOILA!! Now you have a pretty creation to adorn your fridge. :)
