Balsa Wood Magnets
Hi, everyone! Kate here with a look at the balsa wood magnet set I just made using the perfectly distressed elements from Anja’s kit Never Enough Hours, a collab with Captivated Visions. I’ve included a supply list in case you’d like to follow along.
(find it at Oscraps, Scrap Girls, and Etsy)
Cutting machine or scissors
Balsa wood (found in the craft section of the store)
The first thing I did was print and cut the elements I wanted as magnets.
Next, I adhered the the elements to the balsa wood using a spray adhesive. Using an X-acto knife, I carefully cut the balsa away from the design. I used a nail file to finish it off. Balsa is such a soft wood that it really doesn’t take much – just use a light hand with the file.
I brushed all the tops with Mod Podge at this point, just to give them an extra layer of protection. Once they were dry I used hot glue to secure the magnets on the backs.
Thanks for looking! <3
