Made It: Boo Magnets & Freebies

For the last two days my SIL has been coming over and I've been helping her cut out some stuff on the cricut. It's been a lot of fun, and what we were doing got me really excited to try some other things with the Make The Cut program. I am loving it!!!

Since the project for the week over at CSI is fall, I decided to make some BOO magnets! :)
(Of course I always think the linky is open all day Thursday, and it never is. And with early morning doctors oppointments, I totally missed posting these over there. Oh well. Hopefully next week I'll remember to make something on Wednesday! But go check out all the cute stuff anyway!) :)

These magnets are pretty big, just over 4.5" by 4.5". But it's been fun! I don't use my cricut nearly enough!!

"B is for BAT" and "O is for OWL"

I cut them out, ran them through my xyron creative station, turning them into permanent stickers. Cut out the background and glued it all onto magnet sheets and cut out the magnet just around the paper. Then I am going to cover them with modpodge to help keep them all together! :) I love how they turned out!

I do have to do a shout out to all you scapbookers though! It's tough figuring out how to layer the paper so they look good, and are readable! I need to add some extra outlines with my pen to make some of them more readable. I guess I'm still learning! ;) (I am DEFINITELY not a scapbooker.)

When I first thought of these, I couldn't decide how to display them! I thought of cutting them out of fabric and making them appliques on a little quilt or wall hanging, or modpodge fabric and these onto a canvas board. I also thought about framing them, or even making some fabric blocks and putting them on one side of each block. (That's actually what I tried first, but I was having difficulties). That way my boys could play with them, and I would have to figure out where to hang them on our lack of wall space. You could also put them on wooden blocks, and that would be cute too. The possibilities are endless! The magnets are fun though, and Hike already played with them a little bit.

And guess what! While cutting the paper I had extra squares and decided to make an extra set!

Do you want it???
