Cute Gift Idea :: Die Cut Flower Fridge / Notice Board Magnets

I am quite pleased with how these have turned out, they are die cut from various card stock and embellished with some distress stickles!

But I can not really claim this idea as my own!! Last week i received this fantastic book called rediscovered treasures, it left me looking round the house for things to play with, it even inspired me to get up early and go to the car boot to find some treasure to "rediscover" But the weather was pants so thats been put off until next weekend!!

The book is about making beautiful new things for around the home from found or unused objects and i love a bit of upcycling!!

So back to the flowers.... they were inspired by this idea of using rosebuds as magnets, i looked at my stsh of flowers and nothing really took my fancy so i had a lightbulb moment and dug out my dies!!

I love the way the ideas in this book are laid out, i very much love pictures and get very bored with lots of text so was pleased when i delved into this, most of the book is lovely vintage inspired pictures and then towards the back is all of the how to information with lots of different techniques outlined

and another great thing about the book is that my blog readers can have it for a very special price!!
