Fabric Flower Magnets

Awhile back I ran across the idea for these cute flower magnets over at Becky's blog Inking Idaho.  You can see her magnets HERE.  You'll notice that I copied her adorable Not Quite Navy/Springtime Vintage fabric magnet idea, and then I had fun with some of the other Stampin Up fabrics as well.  I made up a bunch of these and used these as 'thank yous' for customer orders. 

These magnets are made using the Fun Flowers Bigz Die.  I ran the card stock and fabric through the Big Shot with the die.  I sponged the edges of the flowers and then adhered everything together.  I used dimensionals between the bottom layer and the fabric layer, and then snail and glue dots between the fabric and top layer.  The centers are the Ribbon Rosettes or the Designer Big Buttons (both now discontinued).  

The 'dream' sentiment comes from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set.  To turn these into magnets, I used my 1 3/8" Circle punch to punch a circle magnet from the Magnet Sheets that you can find on page 216 of the catalog.  (Yes, you really can use your punches with the Magnet Sheets!)  The Magnet Sheets already come with adhesive on one side so it was easy to add them to the back of the flowers.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Take time to stamp something fun.  :-)
