BOSTIK - FRIDGE MAGNETS for Holiday Fun!

Hi y'all! Today is Good Friday, on the Christian calendar!
I'd like to wish all my fellow Christian's out there a wonderful, blessed time:)

So, onto my BOSTIK project for April.
This month I'm featuring one of my fave BOSTIK products:
Yep! You can see it's not quite in pristine condition! The little nozzle is easy to work with......but you can unscrew the cap if you need a decent dollop:) 
I thought I'd show you how I made these little fridge magnets. They'd be quite fun to do with the kids or grandkids over the school holidays, too. They're simple to create!
Materials:
Patterned paper scraps
Sturdy cardboard - the back off a writing pad, for example
Archival ink [eg StazOn, Ranger Archival, Memento]
Any stamps, extra embellishments - I've used mini doilies, a flair & washi tape
magnetic strips

STEP ONE:
Gather materials:
You can use any sorts of magnets. The roll is from KMart here in Aussie; I've cut some strips off those old Real Estate fridge calendars that get handed out! The square sheets come from a Dollar store.
STEP TWO: Cut your cardboard to 5.5cm square.
STEP THREE: Smother one side of your cardboard square in glue, then lay it onto your patterned paper - which needs to be cut larger:

Don't worry if the glue squidges out the edges. It will dry clear and means your paper is well stuck down!
STEP FOUR:
Trim to size and sand your edges:
STEP FIVE:
Add your stamping and embellishments now. For example:
STEP SIX:
Coat the front with a good coat of BOSTIK Hobby Craft glue. This will give added strength & a completely clear coating to protect your project:
 
I used a sponge for this step.
STEP SEVEN:
Coat the back, then whilst still sticky, add the magnet:
Allow to dry. Then you have finished!
STEP EIGHT: 
Use!
The 'latte' flair is from A Flair for Buttons - a lucky win from Monique Liedtke!
The whole bunch:
This glue is SO good. It doesn't smudge or distort the stamping at all! And to show you the sheen/coating:
There is some washi tape behind this stamp.....the Hobby Craft PVA glue binds it all together very well.
It's also water resistant, sticks to material, wood, ceramics & porous materials! 
Excellent for decoupage, leather & suede & sticking down sequins:)
Thanks for looking and I hope this gives you some ideas in your own creating!
Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
