We have a giveaway on our Facebook page HERE as well and on the blog yesterday (keep in mind the blog giveaway ends tonight so don’t delay!)
Hello! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion here to share a double sided magnetic board with you today. I love making these magnetic boards because they are super fun to hold pictures I print from Instagram.
Double Sided Magnetic Board
This summer I was fortunate enough to go to CHA and while I was there a must-do on my list was meet Heidi Swapp. To showcase my holiday photos this season I made a magnetic board. It’s super easy and quite festive.
To create this magnetic board I used Heidi’s Believe 12×12 paper pack and Core’dinations Tim Holtz Seasonal Impressions.
The 4 small magnets are made using Heidi Swapp’s 12 x12 Believe paper pack and the Epiphany Crafts 25 Round tool. The bow is actually a magnet , too! You can get little magnets at your local craft store and you can get full sheets, too, so you can cut them any size you want. The bow is Core’s Tim Holtz Seasonal Impressions paper and cut from my Silhouette. EASY!
Just cover the magnets with patterned paper after you cut them with the Epiphany Crafts round tool so they will “stick” to the back. This way you can change photos or even make a Christmas countdown. So many possibilities with this easy project.

Next up Gail Linder…I am so making this, too!
I took advantage of the super cute number patterned paper, appropriately called Countdown, and punched out the number 1 to 25 to create a countdown to Christmas using an embroidery hoop as my “frame”! It was so easy to coordinate Core’dinations cardstock with the Heidi Swapp ‘Believe’ collection. I embossed and sanded my cardstock to match it to the distressed look of the patterned paper!
I can’t wait to create more of these for a little cluster of frames to hang up at Christmas time!
