Holiday Magnets

Stampin up holiday trinkets magnets

Need a snappy stocking stuffer or quick gift for a co-worker?  These Holiday Trinkets images were converted to magnets using a Scallop Circle Punch and Avery Magnet Sheets (#3270, available at Staples).  Zippity zip.

The scallop shapes popped out from the thin magnetic sheets very easily (like card stock) and were adhered for a perfect fit with matching card stock punches.  According to the Avery package, the magnets are strong enough to hold up paper on most metal surfaces.  However, when I tested them, I learned they will only support a sheet or two.  Still functional but not heavy duty 🙂

Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Trinket stamps (a handy little set for $15.95) were inked in coordinating colors and each design got a little something extra to distinguish their personalities (details listed below).

TIP:  I attached the magnets with Dotto (a repositional adhesive) to a piece of thin cardboard (the stuff you get when you order Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper–I save and "re-purpose" it).  This keeps the look neat and you simply slip them into a medium flat cello bag.

Using my Big Shot (click for Big Shot 101) and Top Note Die, I clipped out the topper using Holiday Treasures Designer Series Paper.  TIP:  When scored the long way, the Top Note die cuts fit Stampin' Up!'s Medium Cello Bags.  When cut the short way, they fit the Small Cello Bags.  Very cool.

I added a Season of Cheer Rub-On sentiment and Whisper White Taffeta (my favorite Stampin' Up! ribbon–so easy to tie) wraps things up.
