Refrigerator Magnets

Today I have a different type of project for you.  I used a couple of the new CottageCutz bird die/stamp combos to make some refrigerator magnets.  They were really simple and quite fun using the stamps, dies, and my Xyron sticker maker -- with the laminating/magnet cartridge.

First I stamped the images onto 110# white cardstock.  I thought the heavier cardstock would be more sturdy in the final project.

Then, closely following the photos on the packaging, I colored both birds with my Copic markers.

I cut them out using the dies included with the set.

I had bought the laminating/magnet cartridge for my Xyron 510 sticker maker some time ago and just recently pulled it out for another project.    I inserted my die-cut bird images into the machine . . .

. . . cranked the handle, and out they came.

I fussy cut them with small scissors, leaving a narrow border of magnet material showing.

And my project was complete.

I just wanted to show that you can do more with these stamps and dies than just make a fun card.  I hope you give this a try!
