Hello, everyone! This is Ashlee from My So Called Crafty life, and I am so excited to be here, Mod hodgepodge of rock, the today to share a fun and easy tutorial with you all!!!
I'm going to show you how you magnets this fun vintage Wallpaper alphabet. I was at Michaels the other day and picked up a pack of your wonderful little cork letters.
I thought it would be a magnet of fun. Since I decoupage very happy, I thought I’d they cover you with a little fable. My hoard of vintage Wallpaper scraps did the trick, and now I have the cutest fridge on the block!

cork letters (I found mine at Michaels)

Vintage Wallpaper scraps
pencil
precision scissors or a craft knife and self healing Mat
Small, Extra-Strong magnets (I have mine at Michaels)

instructions:
The first thing you need to do is trace your letters on your scraps. Place your cork letters face down on the back of your Wallpaper scrap. Keep track of the letters with a pencil.
next, cut out your letter with either precise (fine tip) Scissors or a cutter knife. You don't cut a little something within the lines, so that the edges are on the edge of the cork.
Now, flip Wallpaper letters over and brush a thin layer of Mod-hodgepodge Mat on the back with a brush. The Wallpaper letters, even on the face of the cork letter. Smooth out and bubbles or wrinkles.
seal of the Wallpaper in front of each character by swiping on a layer of your Mod hodgepodge Mat.
that Once the letters are dry, you can use the magnets. Flip over your letters. Dab a bit of E6000 on the back of the letter where you want to place the magnets.

To finish, press each magnet in it is a little glue on each letter. Let the glue cure for at least 24 hours. Then you are ready to play!


I just love my little magnetic set! Apparently my hubby is not well, because every time I set foot from the fridge, it advertised something new and snarky.
I think this little alphabet magnets are great, just keep it in the fridge, because you play for your kids (or big kids) with. You would also be magnet super cute in a vintage-tin-board.
of you, but if you want a slimmer look, you could always get with the little wooden letters at the craft store that are thin. Vintage is one of my favourite Wallpaper-things in the whole world.
Etsy is a great place to scrap packs and even the occasional role. I hope some of you will decoupage your own magnet set-at some point!br>A big Thank you to Amy for me today! If you would all like to see more of my work you can see me<'ll find on my blog My so Called Crafty life here.br>
