Mosaic Madness in 3D

As I mentioned earlier, I have been working on a fun 3D project with the Mosaic Madness stamp set that I am obsessed with!  I have had so much fun using this set and wanted to make something I could look at every day... on my fridge!  Here's what I made.

Using everyday, ordinary clothes pins I created fun magnetic refrigerator clips.  There are sooooo many possibilities with this project!   I went with the new Quatrefancy DSP as my color inspiration for this set, but I am definitely planning on a set with the new In Colors.  Here's a closer look at each magnetic clip.

These clips are simple to make.  I cut a strip of DSP to cover the front of my clip.  The size of the paper will vary according to the clothespins you buy.  Different stores have different sizes.  I just put a thin strip of glue over the clothes pin then place the paper on.  I used the smallest of the Windows Framelits as my base for the focal point.  I free hand paper pierced around the framelit die cut then added different mosaics from the stamp set using the coordinating punch.   I had so much fun choosing which mosaic and which color for each clip and can't wait to do more!!  The last step is the magnets.   I cut a thin strip of magnet off the roll for the top and bottom of the clip then hot glue them into place. And that 's it! Simple and functional too!  I hope you think these are as fun as I do!!
Thanks for visiting, come back tomorrow for a new Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.  Have a great day!

If it doesn't move...stamp it!

Beautiful! How do you get the paper to stick to the clothes pin?
