First, before I do anything else, I want to say thank you! Thanks for your very kind comments, for your excitement about the ornament download, and for following Today's Fabulous Finds! I've really enjoyed reading your reactions to the paint stick ornaments. I think many of you are just as excited about them as I am...I love it!~Okay, moving on...one more paint stick project and then I promise I'm done, anyway for now. :)
I mentioned that the ornaments could be used as teacher gifts. My sister gets the credit for this idea. She made the paint sticks into magnets and added these prints that she put together herself, aren't they so fun? She made them for a first grade teacher, if you don't have a first grader you could make one up for whatever grade. You are welcome to use her prints, or use them as inspiration to create your own.
Copy and paste the image into a document.
Size it to 7 1/2" wide x 2 1/2" tall.
Print it onto white card stock.
Because the prints are in color, you can skip the step in the tutorial to copy them with a copy machine. Color prints tend to not run if they don't have a lot of black with them. Make sure you use an even, thin coat of Mod Podge and be careful not to run your brush over it too many times.
Follow the tutorial for the Paint Stick Ornaments, but instead of adding a wire, cut a strip of wide magnet tape for the back. (The magnet tape tends to curl up and peel off after awhile, so it is a good idea to also use some hot glue, or another strong glue, to attach it.)
Bundle the magnets together with jute or a ribbon and add a card.
I made these magnets and took a picture of them to show you, but the picture quality is terrible (I'm still using my video camera for photos, but a new camera is on it's way!). I'll add a picture as soon as I can so you can see the finished look. Edited to add: Here's a picture.
