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 12×12 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!!

  2. Oh my goodness! Seriously, I LOVE those letters! The size differences are adorable. Now to find a place for a magnet board in my house…

    (Now could you just add a subliminal message with the magnets that says, Beneath My Heart?)
    Hee. Hee.

  4. 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!!!


  5. 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!

  6. That is too cute! How fun is that?

    I nominated the two of you for a Splash Award. Visit my blog to find out about it.

  7. 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!

  8. 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 🙂

  9. Just love coming over here to see what you 2 come up with next!! Such a creative pair!
