The amazing folks over at Plaid, The makers of Mod Podge (not Modge Podge as I've been pronouncing it pretty much my whole life) sent me a giant box packed with Mod Podge awesomeness. If you've been in Michael's lately, you've probably saw something similar to this, though I'd assume a little more organized. If you haven't be sure to swing by and check out the new line of Mod Podge Products.
Two of the newer Mod Podge products include their new Podgable Shapes and Dimensional Magic. Intrigued by seeing a few other projects floating around blogland like these fabulous Statement Rings and these Christmas Ornaments, I knew I wanted to use them in my project.
So here's what you'll need to make my Mod Podge Vintage Sheet Magnets:
Podgeable Acrylic Shapes
Mod Podge - in gloss finish
Mod Podge Dimensional Magic (I used both the silver and gold)
Podgeable Shape Templates
Got it? Good, let's get going.
First, grab your vintage bed sheets. Need a few pieces? Give me call. Clearly I have enough.
Using your Podgeable Shape Template, trace your shape using a pencil.
Cut your shape from your sheet (aren't those scissors the cutest thing you've ever seen!?)
Then, using a paint brush, apply a layer of Mod Podge (Gloss Finish) to the coordinating Podgeable. Add your vintage sheet, then another layer or Mod Podge (Gloss finish).
At this point you can also add on some rick rack using more Mod Podge. I added a longer strip and trimmed the excess using my scissors.
Once that is dry it's time for MAGIC! Mod Podge Dimensional Magic! This stuff is super simple to work with. Seriously I want to put it on everything.
Apply it to all your pieces and allow it to dry for at least 5 - 6 hours or overnight. If you are impatient like me you will end up with finger prints on your magnets. You've been warned.
Once your Dimensional Magic is fully dry, add on some magnets.
I just used a strip of magnets with adhesive backing and cut it to fit each piece.
Slap them on your refrigerator, or any other metal surface, and you have some totally cute and totally original Mod Podge Vintage Sheet Magnets!
They are totally adorable, right?
And to be honest, the addition of the rick rack was a last minute thought and that's probably my favorite part. I mean, seriously, could they get any cuter?!
I spoke to soon...
...a picture of my nephews and niece totally amplifies the cuteness!
I'm ready to put these beauties on every magnetic surface in my house. Off to Michael's (the store, not my house) to buy more Mod Podge!
