We made some fun gift tags over the long Thanksgiving weekend. I discovered printable magnetic sheets a while ago and have been wanting to use them for a project. The tags can also be used as tree ornaments or fridge magnets.
You will need:
Avery Printable Magnet Sheets #3270
Cookie cutters or hand-drawn shapes
Pellon 805 Wonder-Under
Fabric & trim scraps
Fabri-tac or other craft glue (if adding embellishments)
Butcher's twine or string
Iron, ironing board & damp pressing cloth
Silver sharpie or white paint pen
Step 1: Cut pieces of fabric, magnetic sheet and Wonder-Under large enough for shape chosen. Note: Make sure the Wonder-Under is slightly smaller than your fabric and magnetic sheet, or you'll fuse your project to your iron or ironing board!
Step 2: Fuse rough side of Wonder Under to wrong side of fabric. Allow to cool.
Step 3: Remove paper backing from Wonder-Under. Place magnetic side down on ironing board. Align fabric on top right side up, apply damp pressing cloth to fabric side and fuse.
Step 4: Place project magnet side up on flat surface. With a sharp pencil, trace shape onto the magnet.
Step 5: Carefully cut out shape, and use the hole punch to make a hole for the ribbon. Use Fabri-tac or other craft glue to add trim and other embellishments. Allow to dry. You're done!
Before tying the tags onto gifts, use a silver Sharpie or white paint pen to write your to and from informaton on the back. Allow to dry thoroughly before putting the magnets on your appliances.
Fabrics used: Snowflake - Mirrorball dot by Michael Miller, Star - Mama Said Sew, Tree - The Lorax by Robert Kaufman. The rest are miscellaneous scraps from my stash.
Even though the magnetic sheets are printable, I chose to trace the cookie cutters to maximize space.
I have some fun projects in the works for December, so be sure to check back!
