‘You are the sweetest’ refrigerator magnet

Hey, everybody! Well, another Hump Day has rolled around… they sure are coming and going fast these days! I’m thrilled to be back on the Clear Scraps blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a fun project that could be done with kids or grandkids – a refrigerator magnet! Who doesn’t LOVE refrigerator magnets?! And especially one that’s a shaker?! And it could even be a fun addition for a file cabinet in your crafty friend’s studio – doesn’t have to be just for kids! ;) I used the Ice Cream Mini Shaker with Sprinkles Baby Confetti as the shaker filler, and painted it in vanilla, strawberry and chocolate flavors with ivory, pink and brown chalk paint!

I started with the Ice Cream Mini Shaker and painted the top layer with ivory, pink and brown chalk paint to resemble vanilla, strawberry and chocolate ice cream flavors. I mixed some acrylic paint to get just the right color for the cone, and while it was drying I cut ivory, pink and brown patterned paper pieces and glued them into the back to show through the apertures. 

Working from the bottom up, I glued the second and third layers together and glued them to the back. I added the Sprinkles Baby Confetti to all three compartments, and removed the protective film from the back side of the acrylic piece and glued it down, trapping the shaker filler inside. I removed the protective film from the front side of the acrylic piece and glued the painted top layer down. I stamped the ‘sweet’ sentiment in black solvent ink and added several iridescent gemstones.

The final step was adding three disc magnets to the back with distress collage medium.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
