A tin full of button magnets!

It's that time of the year again, when I start getting ready for my Spring Craft Fairs.  In addition to Easter items, I like to make items that can be used during the spring and summer months.  So, for the next few days I will be posting some of the non-Easter items I will be selling at the upcoming fairs.

These button magnets were really easy to make.  I cut the fabric using my Big Shot and the small scallop in the Scallop Circle #2 Bigz Die.  Using a glue gun, I attached them to a round magnet purchased at a local craft store, and then to the front I added a variety of buttons.  Some of the buttons are current Designer Buttons, but a lot of them I purchased from the Stampin' Up! clearance rack.  They were such a great bargain so I bought quite a few packs and I like how they dressed up the front of my magnet.

If you like a bargain, don't forget to check out the Clearance Rack which you can get to in my on-line store.  There are still some packs of the buttons left, but hurry because a lot of the items are no longer available and sell out fast.

I used the following:
Fabric:  Deck the Halls #121716, Springtime Vintage #121817, Spice Cake #124066 (Carry over item from the Holiday Mini Catalog)
Buttons:  Brights Designer Buttons #119747, Neutral Designer Buttons #119743 and a variety purchased through the Clearance Rack
Accessories:  Big Shot #113439, Scallop Circle #2 Bigz Die #113469
