Xyron and Maya Road Blog Hop

What a great opportunity to get to play with lots of fun stuff from  Maya Road and Xyron this past month.  

I started the background of this great Vinatage Tin with Bohemian Bazaar paper by Graphic 45.  In order to fill in all the ripples on the heart tin, I used some stickels to cover where the paper did not meet the edge.

To add some layers I used the crochet trim from Maya Road in yellow.  It made for a nice frame for the sentiment to pop.  The fun shaped paperclip was also added for dimension.  The sentiment really stands out with bright framing and lift from the clip!

After I had finished my focal piece, I decided to make this into a magnet and  Xryon was the perfect answer!

This was my first time using the magnet tape and it is seriously great.  I was so surprised at the strength!

To cover up the tape on the back I ran a heart shaped peice of coordinating paper through my 5" Creative Station.

The tape was super easy to pull off the handy dispenser.  I was sure to trim it away from the edges so it would not be showing.  

I then added my sticky heart from the previous step and it makes a nice finished backing!

Here is is in action on my fridge!  This could also be a great embellishment for a card, or even made into an ornament with a bit of ribbon at the top.  

I hope you enjoyed today!
