Schmancy Flower Fridge Magnets – FREE INSTRUCTIONS

You might remember my schmancy spice cake flowers that I made some time ago. These little darlings have been my most popular post and can you believe that they have had over 6,000 views since November last year!  So…I thought I’d make some more with some of our latest designer series papers.  The idea was to make a stack of them in different sizes to sell but I wanted to give them a useful and decorative purpose.  Now I adore decorative items, but useful, decorative items – well I can’t resist them.  So I’m looking at them on the kitchen bench, thinking out loud ‘what can I do to make these more useful?’  My dear hubby saunters in and simply says… ‘why don’t you stick magnets on the back?’

Brilliant! Why didn’t I think of that?

So…here it is …my FREE schmancy flower fridge magnets tutorial.

Spice Cake Flowers – FREE INSTRUCTIONS

Aren’t these flowers schmancy? I just love them – super gorgeous and super easy to make. The inspiration for these flowers comes from the very clever Catherine Pooler.  I have made some changes because I wanted to use one of the NEW Designer Buttons instead of a brad and used the NEW Spice Cake Designer Fabric around a pencil to make the stem.  Download my version of the instructions here.  If you are interested in a kit, email tania_willis@bigpond.com  If I get some interest, I’ll put one together for a stamp by mail class.

Keep an eye on this page – there is more to come.

  1. Loved your magnets! Thanks for making the instructions available in a PDF. I can’t wait to make these with my girls. These will make great favors for my daughter’s bridal shower.

  2. thanks for visiting my blog Tania and leaving a comment. i just realised i’ve pinned your cheeky scrapbook layout onto my pinterest board! i didn’t realise it was yours 🙂 i love the simplicity of your layouts and they aren’t over-embellished. you should post some more 🙂

    Not confident enough to have a blog yet!! Not technical enough either- my husband would just love that responsibility on top of everything else he does! We met Saturday arvo so needless to say swaps were well and truly done! Not sure how I could get you to see my work without a blog!!
    I am looking forward to trying my hand at your house mini on Thursday- cant wait
