DIY wood magnets

DIY wood magnetsWhen I first got these wood pieces in the Studio Calico Hello, Hello kit, I knew I wanted to save them for something other than paper projects. But I did want to stamp on them. At first, I had the idea to emboss them in white, but as you can see over the next few photos, it didn't work out.DIY stamped wood magnets | Amy Tangerine DIY stamped wood magnets | Amy Tangerine DIY stamped wood magnets | Amy Tangerine DIY stamped wood magnets | Amy TangerineThe impression didn't turn out as clear or bold as I was hoping. Plus it started to smell really bad (like burning chemicals) and the wood started to warp. So I went with a simpler plan to just stamp them with black ink.DIY stamped wood magnets | Amy Tangerine DIY stamped wood magnets | Amy Tangerine DIY stamped wood magnets | Amy Tangerine DIY stamped wood magnets | Amy Tangerine DIY stamped wood magnets | Amy Tangerine DIY stamped wood magnets | Amy Tangerine For this last one, I contemplated for a while, and then decided to draw on it with this white gel pen.DIY stamped wood magnets | Amy Tangerine DIY stamped wood magnets | Amy Tangerine Then I cut apart a promotional magnet I received and adhered them on the backs.
