Whitney's Too Cute Magnets!

Hey guys! Hope everyone had a great weekend... I spent mine cleaning house and getting my magnets done...woohoo!!  I'm really happy with how they turned out and wanted to share... If you want to see my magnet board tutorial just look here!!



I found this great chipboard pack at Joann's for $9.99 and used a 40% off coupon to make it closer to $6!  Each 12x12 sheet has at least 10 of each letter on it.

I punched out 3 to 4 of each letter and layed them out to be painted...




I then used Rustoleum American Accents spray paint in London Gray to paint all the letters.  This is a new color for me and I LOVED it... it is gray with just a touch of brown... too cute!








After letting that dry I wanted to distress them a bit so I used my Tim Holtz Walnut distressing ink on the edges of each letter.


You just rub the edge of each letter against the ink pad...










Just adds a bit of something to them... don't you think??




Now to add my magnets! I found this great adhesive magnet roll at Hobby Lobby for $2.99.




I just cut small pieces of it, removed the backing and attached it to the chipboard... that easy!




My final step... Getting my girls to stick them to the magnet board!  Of course I couldn't resist the urge to add my own little subliminal advertising!! What do you think???
















I also wanted to give another shout out to Kim from Twice Remembered for inspiring me on this project!!

REMINDER!!

Hope you ladies are getting your Gorilla Glue Party projects together!! You can get all of the details on the party HERE and grab our button below!!  Thanks for stopping by!!

These are darling. I am making a magnet/chalk board for my nephew, and wanted to put alphabet letters on, now I know where I'm going to get them :)

That looks great, and I soooo appreciate the fact that you always tell us exactly what you used to make something. Pretty and thoughtful girls, you both are!

Another great project. Love it!

Kasey @ :-) said...

Cute idea! Looks awesome! :)

Cindy said...

You guys never cease to amaze me with your creativity. I mean, I'm crafty, but I'm a copycat. I don't do much original stuff. When I do, it's usually by accident. :o)
Thanks for all your inspiration!

Kay said...

So cute... it turned out great! : )

the7daggetts said...

That really is "too cute". I love it!! And I've never seen that distressing ink before. That is so cool!

Kimm at Reinvented said...

So cute! I love the distressing ink, kind like "Ralph" in an ink pad, huh? :)

Lou Cinda said...

I’ve been admiring the magnet board over at Twice remembered for some time now. Yours turned out lovely. I really want to do one too! So what is this chip board you speak of……you said you popped the letters out. Were they all ready pre-cut into the chip board?

Super, super cute!!!

Traci @ Beneath My Heart said...

Those turned out great! How fun!
(Now could you just add a subliminal message with the magnets that says, Beneath My Heart?)
Hee. Hee.
Blessings,
Traci

Craig, Blair and Turbo Skousen said...

Lara Harris said...

Love these!You gals are very creative!:)

Samantha2818 said...

These look great. Such a good idea. I bought some wooden letters from a pound store about two years ago and have never known what to do with them - I just knew that I could eventually find a use for them. Now thanks to you I have! Thanks x

Susie from Bienvenue said...

Now those are just too darn cute!!! Just like yall~

I would have never thought about that. Thanks for the idea!

Norma Lee @ Norma Lee Good said...

I knew I should have bought more tin when I was in Canton! Next time I go I am loading up. This is such a cute idea. This tin is now one of my "craft staples." Yall are so creative!

Wendy said...

What a cute idea!!

Jessie said...

I am sooo in love with this idea! It's beautiful. I did want to tell you that the person who makes the distress ink is Tim Holtz not Jim Holtz..he has a wonderful line of products...you should check out his crackle paint!!!

Annette said...

These are adorable. You inspired me to create my own set of magnets using the same chipboard letters. http://netteandjimmy.blogspot.com/2009/10/magnetic-chalkboard-art-project.html Thanks for the inspiration!

Twice Remembered said...

I just adore the style/font of those magnetic letters...they are so FUN! I'm sure your kiddos are having a blast with them! Thanks for the shout out, btw - you're so sweet!
