Hello! Spring is here for some of us and just around the corner for others… but either way, I hope that you are inspired by all the pretty florals in BLOOM as much as we are! When it comes to scrapbooking and crafting, flowers and leaves are an everyday icon for me and they’ve become a staple product for sure. I find myself wanting to use them on everything! When we started designing the new Bloom collection I definitely wanted to include a LOT of florals, not only because they fit the inspiration and theme for the line, but because I can’t ever seem to get enough and I always run out of the flowers first! Hopefully this won’t be the case for you this time because we tried to put so many in there!

Amanda is always so clever at coming up with ways to use scrapbooking products in other crafty ways and today’s project will definitely not disappoint! If you are looking for a quick and easy darling SPRING craft, this is it! You could do this in an afternoon or as a fun activity with your kids! Read on for the full tutorial for making your own DIY flower magnets.

The snow is finally starting to melt here in Minnesota, and I am getting so excited for spring. I’ve been doing lots of cleaning and de-cluttering. Spring is always a great time to freshen things up!

Our fridge always seems to collect random papers and coupons, leaving it looking messy and cluttered. I took 15 minutes to remove all the papers. This inspired me to make some new magnets to help make our fridge look a little more attractive.

Using my chipboard stickers from Maggie Holmes Bloom collection as a starting point, I began gathering my supplies. I suggest using the extra strong magnets. They tend to do a better job of holding.

Once you have gathered all your supplies, peel your flowers off and stick them onto a plain white piece of paper. You will need to cut the extra white paper around the flowers.

Once you have cut the paper from around your flowers, hot glue your magnets to the back side.

The hot glue should dry in seconds and your magnets are ready to be put up on your fridge!

A fun and quick project that can be done in less then 30 minutes, and it leaves your fridge looking so pretty.
