How to make a Springtime Delights Resin Magnet

I have to admit, working with Resin intimidated me at first.

With a little practice, I found that it’s really not hard and you can get some amazing results.

Especially when you start small.    (Just make sure to read the package instructions)

My Springtime Delights magnet measures only 2″ x 2.

Materials:            (*affiliate link)

Directions:

Cut and glue a small piece of scrapbook paper to fit inside of tin.

Arrange 3D stickers inside of tin.  You may need to add extra glue under each sticker to make sure they stay in place.

Measure, Mix and pour the resin as directed in the product packaging.

Blow air onto the resin using a thin straw to help remove bubbles.

Allow plenty of drying time for the resin to cure before gluing magnet onto the back of the tin.

Easter Egg Hunt Sign

Any Easter egg hunts in your near future?

I whipped up this cute little sign for our Easter Egg Hunt using a DEFLECT-O Chalkboard Easel*

Simply embellish the easel with stickers and scrapbook paper for a quick DIY project.

Add your message with the chalk marker that comes with the easel.

For more fun, let the kiddo’s decorate the sign.

It also makes a cute sign to label your Easter Buffet.

No matter what part of the country you visit, Paper House Production’s

New Discover USA collection has you covered.  I used this new collection along with

Eileen Hull’s adorable suitcase die from Sizzix, for a cute little make and take project

in the Paper House Productions booth at Creativation.

  7. The next largest piece is the lid.  Apply extreme double sided tape to the flap.  Place the lid over the opening of the suitcase body and slide into position.  Adhere the flap.
  8. Attach the closure flap at the top of the lid using extreme tape.  Leave approximately twice the thickness of the mat board used between the hinge of the flap and the top edge of the lid.  The lightly folded tab will press against the inside of the suitcase to keep it closed.
  9. Attach the handle and embellish with the 3D stickers.destinations-mini-album-inside-sues-creative-workshop
