For my project today, I used the soon to be released My Guy set! With four kids in our house, there always seems to be a shortage of fridge magnets. I mean, fridge space is like prime real estate in our household! :-)
I started with some clear, flat backed pebbles that I picked up at a craft store. I traced around them onto some patterned paper and then cut them out (they are not perfect circles). I stamped and paper pieced the pennant, football, and all star images using permanent ink (this is important). To adhere the paper to the pebble, I coated it with some Diamond Glaze. If you use water based ink, it will run during this step. Trust me, I learned the hard way. :-) After the magnets were dry (I let them sit for about 8 hours), I glued on some magnet strips.
Thanks for joining me here today! I hope your day is a fabulous one! ~Laurie
