Mid Week Midnight Madness "Jane's altered Magnet" Tutorial

Welcome to the Mid Week MM Tutorial!!

Below is this weeks fabulous Tutorial from our very own Jane.
"How to alter a Magnet"
Hello and Welcome, the tutorial today is a altered Magnet as shown above.

This is the Magnet I bought at Michael's in one of their bins and I decided to alter it.

I just so happened to have this paper pad at home, the stamp and felt embellishments. You can use anything you have on hand.

I have to say I fully expected to use my circle cutter for this but I decided to see if these scalloped circle paper punches would fit on this Magnet and to my surprise they did. This purple one is cutting my larger of the two circles. Since my picture is somewhat blurry, the product is a Marvy Uchida paper punch.

This is the smaller of the circle that I am now punching out, and this will go on the top of the larger circle.

Here they both are, cut out.

I first stamped 'Thank you' with my stamp from the above photo with a green stazon ink pad. I then glued on the larger one to the Magnet and then the smaller one onto that.

I am now going to be decorating my Magnet with these felt embellishments.

I am done, this is now on my refrigerator - actually my lower level freezer since my refrigerator is black. You can use other stamps or written words on your Magnet. For example for children's artwork or schoolwork, '"You're a star" .. have fun with it. Thank you all for stopping by 'Priscillastyles'. ~ Jane, "The Paper Affair".
