Simple Coaster Board Magnets

Today I have a different kind of project to show you...magnets!  This is an incredibly easy project to make, and it can be customized in as many ways as you have stamps!  In fact, this project is so simple, I had a group of kids make them, and they were a huge hit.  As you can see, they are composed of a series of circles, but what really makes them look professional (as my 11 year old would say) is that the base is made of Coaster Board.

Tips & Tricks
  • Coaster Board is one of those items that you may have missed when flipping through the catalog (it's on page 156, in case you're wondering!)  At only $5.95 for EIGHT sheets, it's a fantastic bargain.
  • This is a great project to use up scraps of Designer Series Paper! 
  • Adhere your DSP to the Coaster Board, then cut using a Big Shot Die.  I used the retired Movers & Shapers Die and the circle that was sold as and accessory to it.
