She's crafty - and she's just my type
I'm a pretty crafty person by nature. An artist? No. Crafty, yes. I am also a bad blogger and barely manage to eek out posts about my knitting/reading/daily adventures. The crafty-ass stuff that happens here? Totally falls through the cracks.
Today, I tackled a fun and easy project. I made a magnet of the Knitting Olympics Gold Medal. Finishing a sweater in 16 days is quite an accomplishment and surely deserves some real estate on the 'fridge.
I had to play with Franklin's illustration a bit to make it the right resolution for printing. The image is not as crisp as I would have liked but still works for this project.
This is by far one of my favorite crafting tools. A Circular Cutting Thingy. I originally purchased it to help with the Wedding favors I made for our big day. It is super cool.
Cutting the medal out is a snap.
My other favorite crafting tool? My sticker maker. Love. It.
A sticker of the gold medal. This is cool in its own right - but I wanted to take it one step further.
Here is a magnet sheet. You can get these in most craft stores or here (these are self adhesive - no sticker maker necessary).
Stick the sticker onto the magnet and viola! You've got a Gold Medal magnet.
Coming Soon - the sweater that earned me the gold...
