Home Sweet Home Magnetic Clips

Hi!  This is Joyce Shaulis with my second "Home Sweet Home" project this month with the Susan  K. Weckesser Creative Team.  I took up the challenge using the Unity Stamps, "Tumbleweed Houses" to make these magnetic note clips.  These stamps are simply adorable and I will be making more projects with them.

For these clips, I used wood heart shapes and laser cut shapes. For a fun variety, try other shapes as well.  Paint the fronts and backs of five wood pieces and five spring clothespins using Decoart multi-surface satin paints and a medium paintbrush. 
Next, stamp on white cardstock using the new color POP mini inks, in Mystery and the Tumbleweed House set.  Color in the designs with markers.  I used Zig Memory Systems pens. 
Cut out all the designs with scissors. 
Use Decou-page and an old paintbrush to glue on cut out houses onto your wood shapes. 
Next, with a very sharp charcoal pencil, outline your house designs.  Smudge gently with a Q-tip to give a dimensional affect.  Also, edge the clothespins with the pencil and smudge. 
Brush over the decorated wood shapes with the Decou-page.  Dry.  Spray all pieces including the clothespins with Americana acrylic matte spray. 
With E6000 glue, glue on tiny rhinestones to wood shapes and clothespins.  Glue the decorated wood shapes onto the top portion of the clothespin.  Dry well. 
Use Gorilla Glue to adhere your magnets to the back of the clips, use blue tape to hold magnets in place while drying. 

Now your project is complete, and you can hold up all your reminder notes on your refrigerator or clip them anywhere you like.  I hope you enjoy making this little project, they would make great gifts.
