Okay, I can't be the only one that has a collection on crappy corporate magnets on my refrigerator, can I? You know, the ones businesses hand out for free? Like these:
My fridge was tired of being purely functional so I decided to "Gauche" it up by snagging these magnets and giving them a Gauche Alchemy makeover! I was given a series of Japanese Hello Kitty stamps and decided to incorporate those with my Moshi Moshi Kit to revamp the magnets. The fabric and patterned paper in the kit was the perfect background for these babies.
I added various pieces from multiple Mixed Media Color Kits (by far my favorite thing in the shop!).
This last one was the most labor intensive thing I've ever done. I cut a flower from the patterned paper, then got the bright idea to individually cut teeny tiny pieces of the sewing book page and glue them in the outside of the petals. (The I ran over them with Distress Ink.) Luckily the time consuming cutting was worth it.
I still have more boring magnets I'm going to makeover. Look out magnets, I'm comin' for you!
