I started off by wandering around my local Michael’s store wondering what I could make to help remind myself about my ‘to do’ list. I came across a black metal plaque in the dollar area. It had a very large sticker on it with a heart that peeled off really easily. Underneath was a plain metal chalkboard that I put inside of a regular 8 X 8 photo frame. Because it’s metal, it’s also great for magnets.
I created custom magnets by using the Epiphany Crafts Round 25 Tool with the Round 25 Metal Charms. I cut off the ring at the top of the charm with a pair of pliers, then I used the Round 25 Tool and Bubble Caps to create the top for the magnets. I glued the completed bubble caps to the metal charm base using the Xyron Mega Runner.
I added Xyron Magnet Tape to the back of the metal charms to create magnets. The Magnet Tape is incredibly easy to use. It tears very easily and yet it’s strong enough to hold a good sized item.
I added several die cut flowers and butterflies from American Crafts to the frame. I accented some of the flowers with the Epiphany Crafts Flower 25 Tool.
Here’s a close up of the completed magnets.
Finally, here’s a close up of the top of the frame. I love the addition of the Flower 25 Bubble Caps to the centers of the American Crafts flowers. It really finishes them off nicely.
I placed my little magnet / chalk board by my front door to remind our family of important appointments and activities. Hopefully it will help us keep on track of our busy schedules.
Thanks for visiting! Have a wonderful day!
Hello! It is Malika blogging today. I want to share with you a little notepad that I put together using some of Xyron’s amazing magnetic tape and an Epiphany Crafts embellishment of course!
This is a simple project to make and would make a great little thank you gift. Make a bunch of them and keep them on hand for those times you need to have a little something to give!
For this project, gather some paper for the folder (I used a cameo cut file for mine), a die cut flower, paper for the pad, some twine, Mod Podge, an Epiphany Crafts bubble circle and a brad setting, and Xyron’s magnetic tape.
Gently curl up the petals of the die cut flower.
Unstack the flower and cover each layer with Mod Podge. This gives the flower a little more durability.
Once the layers have dried, stack them back up and put the Epiphany Crafts brad through the center to hold the layers together.
Assemble the inside papers, punch two holes at the top and use some twine to secure the paper to the die cut folder.
Add two strips of the Xyron magnetic tape along the inside flap of the folder.
Here is a little trick to match up exactly where to put the magnetic tape on opposite side of the folder. Let the second set of magnetic strips stick to the already adhered pieces. Then close the folder and the sticky back of the new magnetic tape will adhere to the correct place!
Close the folder…
And the magnetic tape is in the right place.
Finally, push the brad (center of the flower) through the middle part of the flap of the folder.
And there is the finished project!
Give it a try!
