Baby $2 Altered Magnetic Frame PLUS Tutorial

Hi Everyone
Another really easy and economical idea today – and one you can probably do RIGHT NOW if you hunt around on your fridge! Not IN your fridge you understand – ON your fridge! I have a tutorial at the end so you can see how I made these – they are really quick and easy.
I have made this gorgeous little magnetic photo frame for my sister with the same Cosmo Cricket Earth Love collection – with the background paper from Crate Paper.
I have just put the patterned paper inside for the photo, but she will be able to put a little pic of her newborn in it and slap it anywhere metal!
I have used the Earth Love rub-ons for the decoration as they are so soft and subtle. They were very easy to apply over the mod-podge (see tutorial below)
One thing to mention that I have not covered n the steps below – if your frame has a very shiny surface, rough it up before the first step with some sandpaper to take the shine off and let the mod-podge stick better. Even better – just see if you can peel the top shiny layer off!
I hope you will give this a go and link back your projects here in the comments so I can see how it turned out!
Here are a couple of extra pics of all the gifts together. If you want to have a closer look or see the tutorials and learn how they were made- simply check my blog posts from earlier in the week…

Thanks – Lowri đŸ™‚
