A good accident

Hi Everyone,

Well as I always say, there are no mistakes or accidents in crafting, they are all creative opportunities.  This was never so true as just last week I ordered some A4 magnetic sheets to house my framelits and dies however I accidentally ordered very thin sheets which are no good for holding the dies.  I was in Kmart with the MOTH (man of the house) and saw some magnetic frames in the technology department and I have some on my fridge already, and thought hey I could make some of them with those useless thin magnetic sheets.

So here is the outcome.  Nothing goes to waste and mistakes are always creative opportunities.   The designs are limitless.

I used the new Rectangle stitched framelits (love these and are available in the current occasions catalogue) to cut the frame out using any DSP.  With the largest Framelit I cut out a plain co-ordinating piece of cardstock.  I adhered only three sides of the DSP (left the top open to insert a photo).  Stuck some of the thin magnet sheet to the back (I cut three strips and adhered).  Then decorate to however you like.

These are just two of the ones I have made and stuck on my fridge.  They look so much nicer than the bought ones I had!!

Hope you like them!  If you would like come and make some of these I have heaps of magnetic sheets to use up so hold some project classes to make these.  Please let me know if you are interested so I can start planning the classes!!!

Hope you have a great day.
