Inspired interlude

As I said in the post below I thought I'd probably get distracted from the task in hand and well, here's the evidence! I just had to have a go at making some magnets from Jodi Ohl (Cloth Paper Scissors Jan /Feb 09)http://sweetrepeats.blogspot.com/

I couldn't find any wood blocks as recommended for the base so I just glued some pieces of heavy weight card together, covered it with various gels and paint, added a backing paper and a scrap. Each magnet is approx 3x5cm.
A perfect little gift
And will you look at that?? up on the board and staying there, unlike the time I glued all the magnets on the wrong way and they all slid off the wall!

That was great issue of cps, so many things to try and those were one of them!! Yours look great and what a good idea to glue cardboard for the bases....
