Altered Magnet

I found this magnet at our local Daiso and I have to admit this is my greatest find ever! *lol* I had always been on the lookout for this type as it works both ways, as a box, and as a fridge magnet..and the fact that you can see through it, is even more cool!!! There were only 2 left on the rack and I sure didn't waste my time pondering whether I needed both..or just one! *hehe*

Anyhoo, when I received my Papier DT kit for this month, it was filled with tonnes of yummy vintage goodies that I just wanted to dive into and use! but I held sum back for my upcoming projects and only used a few for this magnet *hehe*

A lil tute:
1) Distress the edges of the Melody Ross chipboard with distress inks and stamp on top of it with a script / text stamp

2) Adhere the cihpboard to the box and then continue to layer with lots flowers (I've used the 3D flower die, you may even opt to use Prima flowers)

3) Layer two different butterflies (the bigger one is courtesy of a dear DT friend who had been extremely nice to share some with know who you are dear!) ;))

4) And lastly, I added the two Jenni Bowlin chipboard buttons

easy peasy huh! I know I havent dropped by your blogs as much as I should, but please forgive me... I will be sure to come by later today and leave you some love and definitely to be in awe at the things you have to share...till then, cheerios!!! :)

Materials Used : Magnet, Melody Ross Chipboard, Text Stamp - POD, Sizzix 3D flower die, other flowers, Jenni Bowlin Buttons, Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch and Slice Butterfly, Twine
