Magnetic Board

Happy Tuesday!  For my Creative Critterz Imaginations blog post I decided on making a hanging magnetic board.  The theme this week is Home Decor.  I used Nursery Tails Imagine cartridge for all pattern paper and the April Showers Cricut cartridge for my cuts.  The border is also from the Nursery Tails cartridge.  Here is a pic of it hanging, it's hard to see against a white wall unfortunately.  More pics are below where you can see the colors and cuts better.

The size of the board is 8.5" x 9.25".  I used bought 26 guage sheet metal from home depot and cut that down to 8" x 7.5" using tin snips.  Glued that down on the chipboard and then covered that w/ my designer paper.  The border is cut at 2" and I glued that down w/ it hanging over the end of my chipboard a little so you could only see the border and not the bottom of the chipboard.

To make my magnet I used my I-top tool.  My butterfly is cut at 2" and my house is cut at 6.5".  Here is an up close pic of the designer paper that can be found on the Nursery Tails Imagine cartridge.

I have made a magnetic board before and you can see a video of it HERE and HERE.
