Here is a great idea for book arts and crafting I got from a friend on Facebook who had posted a HomeTalk article. Here is the article
It’s actually not just magnets, but greeting cards, book covers, book marks, and kind of paper art really. Here is what you do.
Select an old book bought at a jumble sale or library discard sale. I have several neat ones. One is a Spanish dictionary and one that is an oversized 1950s world architecture book.
Tear out a page from it and put it upside down in the printer.
Then find an image you like, either on your computer or on the internet. I really enjoy The Graphics Fairy for free vintage clip art and other graphics. http://www.thegraphicsfairy.com
In essence, you’re just using the book page as your printer paper.
then once the graphic is printed on your book paper, you can do what you like to it. As a first try, I made bookmarks. I am still working on how to center my graphic on the book page. It was easier to make bookmarks because I could cut them up and not worry about the centering until I gained more experience with the process-
You can see here that I glued the papers onto cardstock. You can, at this point, glue them onto magnets, or fiberboard coaster material, or cardboard, or whatever.
I pressed them, let the glue dry and then I laminated them with my new Swingline Laminator I bought for cheap through Amazon. Voila!
So easy! I can see already I am going to have to buy more printer ink! 😉
