C.R.A.F.T Challenge .............

This week at C.R.A.F.T Challenge the theme is 'Anything but a card'. My project for the challenge is a Fridge Magnet which I have made for mum's birthday next week. The magnet features a picture of my little girl Grace. I made the fridge magnet by printing onto Inkjet Magnetic Paper which I got from Photo Paper Direct. I am so impressed with this Magnetic Paper, I think it is so nice to be able to make personalised gifts. I printed my magnet at just over 3 inch square and I then managed to fit 6 images on to an A4 sheet. I added a few digital elements to my picture before printing it onto the magnetic paper. I am going to be making a lot of these for Christmas presents as they make lovely inexpensive gifts.

I also made a box for my magnet which finishes off my gift. I hope my mum likes it!

Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs Lynsey:)
