Magnetic Memo Board

Materials:

  • Fuse Creativity System® Starter Set
  • Medium Design Set 100850 - Bird
  • Medium Design Set 101900 - Frame
  • Stamp Block Set
  • The Original Orange-Handled Scissors™ (8")
  • Metal Tray
  • Embossing powder
  • Embossing inkpad
  • Embossing heat gun
  • Linen
  • Chipboard
  • Parchment paper
  • PVA, Mod Podge, or similar paper glue
  • 2-inch foam brush
  • Gouache or watercolors
  • Small paintbrush
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks

 

Instructions:

  1. To begin, spread a sheet of parchment paper on your work surface to protect it. Lay your chipboard on the parchment, and coat it generously with PVA, Mod Podge, or similar glue using a sponge brush. Lay a piece of linen on top of the glue-coated chipboard and smooth it out with your hands. Flatten any creases or bubbles.  Apply a coat of glue on the fabric surface, smooth out again, and allow it to dry.

  2. Once dry, flip it over, coat the backside of the chipboard, apply a second piece of linen to the back, smooth and coat with glue. Set aside to dry.
     
  3. Use your Fuse Creativity System to cut out a frame, a bird and a few flowers from the sandwiched linen and chipboard.

  4. Stamp a few flowers on each bird, frame or flower using the Asian-Inspired Clear Stamps and an embossing ink pad.
     
  5. Dust the inked areas with embossing power. Tap the inked pieces to knock off any excess embossing powder. Heat the inked/powdered areas using an embossing gun. Be careful not to burn your fingers!

  6. Once the pieces have cooled, color in the flower petals with gouache or watercolor paints and a small brush. Set aside to dry.

  7. Stamp a few floral motifs in the corners of a metal tray. Dust the inked area with embossing powder, remove the excess powder and heat the inked areas with an embossing gun. If necessary, hold your tray with a hot pad to protect your fingers. The metal warms fast.

This is a wonderful gift the kids can make for either Mom, Dad, Grandma, or Grandpa. This would be so easy for the children to make according to the receiver likes. If mom likes butterflies, they can do it with butterflies. If dad like tools, they can do it in tools. They are only limited by their imagination. I cannot wait to do this with my granddaughter for her Mom for this Mothers Day.
