Here is my Valentine for you-
The heart can angle this way......
or this way. Why?
It's a magnet! I took apart a cookie tin from the Thrift Store and using old scissors, cut out a rough heart shape. Attached a magnet to the back of the heart and we have a connection.
I used a dental tool to scratch up the side of the tin that I was applying the Dimensional Glaze to. This is to give it 'tooth', something for the glue to really hang onto. Better than a slick surface.
The heart was also clear embossed for protection and added strength.
Thank you for stopping by today. Please go see what Terre has to show you and don't forget to take part in the Queen of Hearts Challenge. I think you'll be so glad you did!
