Midweek Madness 8/6/08

Acrylic - it's not just for mini albums. Do you have a page leftover from an acrylic mini? How about using it as a base for a quick and easy altered project!
This is a fridge magnet I created using an acrylic square:

Here's how I did it.

1.Apply a red frame MOSD Stick On to the front of the acrylic.
2.Cut a square or strips of patterned paper sized to fill / mat the inside of the frame.
3.Adhere a photo onto the paper.
4.Apply patterned paper to the back of the square. (This gives it extra depth.) Use the backside of the stick ons to hide adhesive.
5.Add embellishments and a sentiment to the front side as desired.
6.Adhere magnetic tape to to back of the acrylic.

Easy peasy and a fun way to get some art onto your fridge or file cabinet at work.

So cute Debbie. I have a woodfront fridge and all stainless appliances so can't do fridge magnets any more. It's such a bummer. LOL However, I think I may try this project, but use my crop-a-dile to punch holes in the top and make a hanging out of it. Or...I can use those $1 easel things and stand it up on the table. Lots of ideas!!! woop woop
