Paper Magnet Fun!


I wanted to make my son some fun magnets and the perfect cartridge for this is the Boys Will Be Boys Cricut cartridge! These went together very quickly too and would make a great gift or a fun party favor too:) Here's how I made mine.
For the box I used the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge and cut out the Nut cup on page 130 with the fit to page option on.
Then, using the Boys Will Be Boys cartridge I cut the Race Car on page 68 at 3" with all options selected to create my layers. Once with just the car selected, then with shift, then with layers. I did this twice, once for the front of my box and once for a magnent.
I then chose the Dump Truck on page 29 and cut it at 3" using all the above selections.
I then cut the trike on page 36 at 3" with all the above selections.
Last, I chose the Car cut on page 61 and cut it at 2" with all the same selections.
I then embossed layers of the vehicles using my Cuttlebug and Argyle embossing folder, Spots 'n dots folder and the Polka Dots embossing folder. For the red detail on the tike cut I used a Sakura red glaze gelly pen.
I then adhered everything together and attached some self adhesive magnet strips that I cut to size to the back of each vehicle and packaged them all up in the box. My son has had a lot of fun with them! I hope you try it out for yourself:)
