I stayed up very, very late last night and made these
my first belle & boo magnets.
I love how the little 'lost' girls head fits perfectly on to an old photo of my cousin that I keep on my fridge!
I have been pondering about how to package the magnets for a while now. The printed cards that my buttons are pinned to have had such positive feedback, it was tempting to just repeat the same packaging. How ever last night I messed around with different design ideas and came up with these
It will keep the production costs down a little bit, which is good as magnet's are slightly more expensive to make than buttons & it enables the customer to see the backs, so they know they are definitely buying magnets.
Whilst I was at it, I had drunk a lot of coffee by this stage! I made a header for my new belle & boo stickers
I am & always have been obsessed by stickers, I used to spend all my pocket money on stickers for my numerous sticker albums. They were the sort with shiny pages so you could re arrange your stickers & I did constantly & obsessively! Glittery with sparkly, tiny ones together, bunnies with other bunnies, but wait now I have just bought a glittery, tiny, bunny sticker I'll have to re arrange all my albums from scratch again....you get the idea!
Anyway I have been pushing my obsession on to my unsuspecting customers for months now, sneaking free stickers in with their orders and decorating their envelopes. Yet alas they were mere matte paper stickers so you can imagine my utter joy when I sourced some glossy sticker paper that I could put through my printer. I spent literally hours lining up my tiny designs on to the 70 1" circles (I'm sure there most be an easier way of doing it?) and voila I now have my very own range of stickers to sell, the little 7 year old me is very, very proud in deed :)
