Magnets, anyone?

Let's create something different today. If you are an avid reader of Anjung Seri, you'd probably recognize the Anjung Seri magnetic note where you can write important phone numbers or note etc and stick it on your fridge or on your magnetic board. We got lots of those when we bought Anjung Seri during the annual PWTC bookfair. Trust me, they'll still give it as freebie on this year's bookfair. They have too many of those. And the torn chicken recipe, was a freebie from a can/box that I couldn't remember.

The thing is, both of them had been on our fridge's door for few years now, and nobody seems to use them anyway. As much as we love fridge magnets, and collect them from places we've visited, I'm afraid these two didn't fit in well with the theme.

So I took them with me, and tore the sticker cover of that 'magnetic mat' (not sure what it's called hehe). And I paired them up with a few stickers that I bought at Amcorp Sunday Market few months back.

This is the easiest way to do your own fridge magnets of your own design. First you stick your favourite sticker on the magnetic mat like this:

They're not really my favourites, but I'm using them anyway hehe. Since the magnetic mat is so soft you can actually cut them according to the shapes you like. So I use my scissors and cut the shapes accordingly.

Until I got the desired shapes. Take your time cutting the magnetic mat because it can be a bit tricky at times, especially when you use small stickers. And here's the result:

Cute, aren't they? And here's what it looks like from the back.

Now it's ready to be decorated on your fridge, or better still, on your magnetic board in your study/craft room.

I don't have a magnetic board so I use the fridge for display purposes. :P

You can do this in less than 5 minutes, provided you have all the tools needed for the project. For now, I'm on experiment with the rest of the magnetic mat, trying to transform other everyday items into fridge magnets. Hehe. But that would have to wait.

Have fun experimenting too. :)

Sneak Peak: Calendar Swap

Hi everyone. Thousand apologies for not being able to update lately. With the thesis coming, I hardly had time for myself.

By the way, manage to finish doing the calendars for Lovescrap Calendar Swap '09. I've been delaying these for ages- my fault. But thankfully they're now on their way to Ida, the Calendar host. Hopefully they will arrive safely and soundly. :) So here's the sneak peak!

And the paper butterfiles (also from Lovescrap swap 08) had safely reached me few days back. Will post the butterflies later - once I found the right time.
