Cosmo Cosmic Lights and Magnets!

Hi Everyone
Today I am sharing a couple of fun and quick ideas altered ideas using Cosmo Cricket!

Lights On!
I found this light switch cover and thought it would be great to add a bit of interest for my boys’ room.

I measured and cut a piece of paper for the background and then added a sticker and some chipboard embellishments. To add dimension to these awesome chipboard “Converse” shoes – I punched small holes for eyelets and threaded some string for laces!

This “Boyfriend” range from Cosmo Cricket is also available digitally.
Magnetic Memos
I picked up these magnetic photo frames at a photo-shop clearance and they make great little gifts to give away.
Just cut a square of paper to size and add a sticker, graphic or sentiment in the center.

Cosmo Cricket “Garden Variety” Collection
Cosmo Cricket “Boyfriend” Collection
Cosmo Cricket “Upcycle” Collection

Lowri 🙂
