Cindy Stevens is going to show us in a step-by-step tutorial how to create this fun and functional magnetic board:
Supplies: Silly Skedaddle Paper (35628) - Dear Lizzy Neopolitan, Fresh Blooms Paper (35630) - Dear Lizzy Neopolitan, 6x6 Paper Pad (35658) - Dear Lizzy Neopolitan, Serendipity Ballerina (53292) - Thickers, Wood Buttons & Epoxy Accents (78073) - Elements, Fabric & Epoxy Brads (78074) - Elements, Large Decorative Tags (78069) - Bits, Printed Chipboard Shapes (78070) - Dear Lizzy Neopolitan, Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Rub Ons (43395) - Minimakrs, Dear Lizzy Neopolitan (42232) - Remarks, Basic Ribbon Spools Specialty (58217) - Ribbon
Step 3- Apply Modge Podge liberally to the surface with a foam brush.
Step 4- Adhere papers and then go over with a brayer (a sturdy edge like a popsicle stick will also work in a pinch) and make sure there there are no air bubbles under the paper. Once the glue is dry, apply one to two coats over the surface for durability; allow to dry between coats.
Step 5- While waiting for the glue to dry, select several buttons and chipboard pieces to use for magnets. Adhere the shapes to magnets using double-sided tape.
Step 6- On the wrong side of a 6x6 sheet of paper, trace the chipboard shape, cut it out, and adhere to chipboard. Lightly sand the edges with an emery board. When the magnetic board is dry, adhere it to the board using double-sided tape; add wording if desired.
Step 7- Since I intend to use this quite a bit, I kept embellishments to a minimum and only used a few pieces as well as rub ons to add interest but no bulk. I then finished it off with a bow and brad.
