Collaged Magnets


I had so much fun making these little magnets for Unruly Paper Arts!  All three ladies are stamps (Teesha Moore and Lynne Perrella) colored with Ranger Distress Markers. I have a short article up at UPA today… hope you’ll pop over and say hello.

Did you recognize what I used as my three magnet bases?  Love recyling my lids:


I’ll also enter these at Fashionable Stamping Challenge, where the theme is “Alter Something.”

Thanks for the visit!

    Too fabulous an idea to recycle the lids and turn them into amazing home decor items that are practical and funky and yes, they would make fabulous gifts.

    Oh My Gosh!!! Who would have thought to use the lids? You of course. Brilliant Marjie. I’ll have to remember this!

    How fun! I love that you repurposed the links from your ink. I have a vintage photo and a walnut stain that are just about ready to give up the ghost. I’ll keep this in mind. I think my favorite is “warranty not included.” It just makes me snicker for some reason. The butterfly is a nice touch of whimsy, and the way she’s half way out of the “frame” is visually interesting, too.

  35. Too cool Marjie! Now you could definetly sell these if you wanted (ie the QOTW at ATT, all your stuff for that matter!!

  36. These are great fun with gorgeous images, colouring and layering.
    Hope you have had a good weekend Marjie.
    hugs {brenda} xox

  37. Awesome!! I bet you could take apart altoid tins and do the same thing.

  38. These are 100% COOL!!! What a great idea, looks great & love the recycled aspect too 🙂

  39. well aren’t you clever!!!!!! these are fantastic!

  40. Stephanie & Barbara…. these are old lids from before I knew about re-inkers… I used to throw away the pads before I knew you could refresh them. Not anymore!

  41. Love…love…love!!! x

  42. Love them all! What a great idea using the lids as they make a really great base and make your collages look framed. Beautiful job! Thanx so much for sharing and for the great idea 🙂

  43. What a great idea Marjie! I love your “magnets”…the stamping and colouring is soooo nice! Love it…
    greetings, Alie 🙂

  44. Gorgeous stamps and loving the colours very much! Great idea to use the lids too. I love the sentiments; I think the warranty one would suit me at my age!
    I’ve got some vintage beer mats which you’ve now given me an idea for – thanks Marjie!!

  45. These are so beautiful and funky! What an innovative way to use your lids!

  46. Barbara Albrecht says:

    WONDERFUL!!!! Distress lids….I did the same thing as Stephanie…gasped and then wondered what happened to you ink pads.

  47. Love your miniature collages, Marjie – such wit and skill combined… great!
