I love when the doorbell rings unannounced and there is a package waiting on the door step. To my kids surprise, the package was brimming with all kinds of sparkly wonderful crafting supplies from CraftProjectIdeas.com. The kids found pompoms, glitter, pipe cleaners, jewels, magnetic sheets and so much more. They could not wait to start crafting. Our first project was making Magnetic Artwork Puzzles from the kids art work.
Magnetic Puzzle Materials:
- Magnetic Sheets
- Child’s Artwork
- either a Cuttlebug and Puzzle Die Cut or printable puzzle template and scissors
The kids made simple art work by using a homemade heart cardboard stamp and our DIY stamp pad. We trimmed their painting to be just larger then the magnetic sheet. I love the the sheets have a self adhesive backing. This made adhering the art work to the magnetic sheet a snap:)
Next we ran the magnetic sheet and art work through the Cuttlebug with the puzzle die cut (the Cuttlebug is a simple die cut machine). Don’t worry if you don’t have a die cut machine, scissors will work great too. You can print off a puzzle temple, trace it onto your art work and then cut it out. I was really surprised at how easy the magnetic sheets were to cut.
The kids had so much fun playing with their simple magnetic puzzles.
Now your have wonderful custom made puzzle! They would make a fun addition to your fridge, or could be adorable gifts.
Here are a few ideas on how to use your Magnetic Puzzles
- Grandparents would love to receive a one of these special puzzles in the mail.
- Instead of artwork, why not make a photo puzzle.
- These would make great travel puzzles. Just bring along a cookie sheet.
The possibilities are endless! What are you going to make with your magnetic sheets?
