My project comes from the Nautical category. I was trying to think outside the normal parameters of what nautical might mean. So, I turned to fish. (I realized after the fact that they were probably more likely looking for boats, flags, rope and anchors) I came up with this little magnet fishing game. My girls love it!
This was SO easy to create. To give the fish dimension, I first stamped in one color and then rolled it in a darker color. You cut them all out and punch a hole for the paper clips. You can purchase magnets at Hobby Lobby and since one side of my magnet was sticky, I added a bit of glitter to it. And, a quick word about the front of the altoid container. That little fishing sign was made from a craft stick. I cut it down, wrote the sentiment in black sharpie and then used a lighter to burn the edges.
Hope you enjoyed! Remember, if you didn't make it this time, to keep on trying! You never know what they are looking for in a particular issue and your card could still have been great, just not quite what they wanted.
Have a great day friends.
