MCT 24th Edition Sneak Peek: Mini Frame Magnet

by Veronica

Welcome to another Sneak Peek day for My Creative Time! Today I'm featuring one of MCT's newest dies (available this Friday): Stitched Mini Frame (with arrow) Die.

For my easy-peasy project, I created a sweet little fridge magnet to hold a photo. I cut the frame out twice: once out of a magnet sheet and once out of patterned paper. I'm showcasing my cousin's "Save the Date" photo for this sample since I demolished her original Save the Date for the project (had to get the magnet sheet somewhere, right? *giggle*) I must admit, I wasn't sure how well the die would cut through the magnet sheet - but no worries - it cut like buttah!

I simply added the sentiment to the flag, stuck on the heart and VOILA! I told you it was easy-peasy!

  25. I like that you demolished/reused the magnet and picture...when she sees this she will forgive you :D Now the picture can have longer life...somehow I can not throw out picture sent by friends and family...like I will get struck by lightening or something :( I like to put them on the fridge and save older ones for a page someday??? Great project.
