Last Savvy N Sassy Ribbon Kit Projects

So this is my last month on savvynsassy's DT...huh, I'm sure gonna miss getting those awesome little ribbon cards in the mail each month! This month, I had the pleasure of working with the Snow Bunnies kit and I loved it! This kit works well with winter pages, summer pages, baby pages...etc!

I used the turquoise faux suede lace-up tape and the mini turquoise ric rac to spice up this summery LO of my cutie pie nephew.

I used the coral satin edge organza and Pink Paislee's Tinsel Town for this project. It's an altered toilet paper roll...I guess you can call it my "Bailout Christmas Present"! LOL! I created this as gift packaging for the refrigerator magnets I made.

If you're looking for a quick, easy, and cheap gift? Then these little fridge magnets are just the thing for you! (this was one of the challenges during the last crop at scrap-diner.com)
I made 50 of these for less than 5 bucks...can't beat that!
To create these, you will need the following supplies:
marble accents (the ones with the flat edge) on sale for 88 cents at AC Moore
E-6000 adhesive (used my 50% off coupon and got this for less than 2 bucks)
a 3/4" punch
3/4" magnets ( I used the 30" magnetic strip and just cut them down to size- 99 cents)
ETA: don't use the magnetic strip, the don't hold paper that well...just get the regular 3/4" magnets
patterned paper scraps.
1. Punch the circles from patterned paper.
2. Apply a drop of glue to the magnet. Put the paper circle on it and press down until completely covered.
3. Apply a drop of glue to the flat side of the marble and the press onto the paper circle until the glue reaches all the way to the edge.
4. Allow to dry completely overnight.
**NOTE: for the first few minutes after assembling, check to make sure that the magnet and marble haven't moved (some will slide to the side, just adjust and allow to dry).**
