Large Chipboard Magnets....Coming Soon!


So I'm always dreaming up new ways to craft and stock my Etsy shop. I would say its an obsession right now. I have so many ideas but not nearly enough time in the day or days itself to make everything I think of. But one of my ideas I did tackle was making these cute chipboard magnets! I absolutely loved the way they turned out and wanted to share them with you! The first one I made was the "Oh So Sweet" cupcake. Oh man, did I stare at it for hours when I finished my yummy little project. Than I decided to move on to my "Home Sweet Home" magnet followed by my last but my favorite chipboard magnet..."Toxic Love" magnet. That one was the most fun for me to create. I just hand sketched a design I wanted to do, painted my chipboard, cut out scrapbook paper for the heart and cross bones, doodled on the entire image and than covered it with thick glaze not to mention attached a magnet to the back. Each chipboard magnet is fairly big, it measures approx 2.5 inches or larger. I'm going to start listing these in my Etsy shop found here starting on Monday or Tuesday. As usual custom designs are available if you have something in mind so just contact me. I would love to hear some ideas from all of you out there on what I should design. Please post your ideas in the comments section. One of these days I might even host another give away with one of these (or a chipboard magnet made using one of the ideas from the comments section) as the prize. As usual, have a happy crafty day!
