A C Bailey Jingle Bell Hop

Welcome to the AC Bailey Jingle Bell Hop! With the holidays literally around the corner, the AC Bailey Design Team has decided to help Santa (and you) out this year with some fun and easy projects to make the holiday gift season a bit easier. And just like Santa, we've also gotten some extra help this year and asked some additional elves to help out and post some of their cool projects too! And if that isn't enough help...we've also arranged for some early Black Friday sales just in case you need some products to get the projects completed.

So come out and meet our elves...check out their projects...leave a comment on their blogs and be eligible for a prize-upload some of your completed projects from the tutorials into the AC Bailey gallery and be eligible for another prize! Projects need to be completed and uploaded into the gallery by Tuesday, November 24th at Midnight Eastern to be eligible for a prize.

Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Cindy aka cardsister and I love making cards, scrapbooking, making journals and magnets and playing with paper! Be sure and visit all the blogs linked in this "hop" today, we have lots to show you!

MEMORY MAGNET BOARD


SUPPLIES:
Cardstock of your choice
Metal sign
Xyron or Modge Podge
Chain
Trim
Red Line Tape
4 wooden 1 1/2" circles
4-/34" magnets

Prepare the metal sign by wiping it free of dust. Cut paper 1/2" wider than outside of metal sign. Run through large Xyron or use thin layer of Modge Podge to adhere to sign. Distress the paper off the sign with a sanding block. Ink edges with Powder Puff Ink. Roll up 1" at the bottom of sign and put down red line tape. Adhere trim to bottom of sign. If the adhesive will not stick once you put the paper back down, use another line of red tape to adhere. At this point you can measure the length of chain and attach to the top of the sign. Punch four 1 1/2" circles from paper and adhere to wooden circles. Glue magnets on back. You just finished a memory magnet board!

Here is a sample of different types of magnets. The magnets are only limited by your imagination. The two pink ones are bottle caps, the square ones are layered with glossy accents and the round ones are clear marbles. Have fun!


Thanks for "hopping" by and hope you enjoyed your visit! Please make sure and leave a comment here so that you will be eligible for a prize! Now hop and jingle your way on over to Zenita's blog and see what's happening over there! Thank's again!
