Let´s jump straight into a new "childhood memories" project! I don´t know about you but when I was a little girl one of my favorite things to play with was my granny´s sewing basket. I could spend hours playing with her yarns, spools, buttons and the darning egg! It looked like a giant green dinosaur egg and I used it to play "discoverer of a forgotten ancient world"! But the buttons were my favorites - they were used for making big mosaics on the carpet, ingredients in various cooking projects for dolls and being threaded on yarn for princess necklaces! So I had to use some of my beloved buttons to make something nice! Jamie and I made a tin lid magnetic board with itty bitty button magnets! Want to make your own? Easy as pie really! :) As in - you can totally whip up a pie while you work on this project!
Here´s what you need:
Take your polymer clay and roll it into little balls.
Take a button and press it into the ball so that it becomes flat.
Carefully remove the button and place the polymer clay onto a baking sheet.
Once you are ready put your clay buttons into the oven at 110°C for 30 minutes (or as your clay´s instructions tell you).
Let cool. In the meantime (see, now would be perfect to prepare a pie!) you can cut your magnetic foil into pieces slightly smaller than the clay buttons.
Take your clay buttons, put a dollop of glue onto the back and attach the magnetic foil. Let dry.
Tadaa - ready to use! All you need to do now is find an empty cookie tin (from granny!) and put your beautiful new magnets onto the lid!
Have a great weekend!!!
