MCT 12 Days of Christmas ~ Day 8!

Welcome to My Creative Time's 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop! We are showcasing projects that are quick and easy or some with more details. We are all SO BUSY these days, so hopefully you can pick up some ideas for this holiday season. You should have arrived here from Linsey's Blog! If not please head over to Emma's for the start! You will want to make sure that you leave a comment for everyone so that you will eligible for the DAILY GIVEAWAYS! That's right DAILY!!!

For today's project, it's kind of a repeat, with a twist!  Miss Katie and I decided to make the roof tin project but with a Christmas theme!  Mine is in a frame that can be changed for the seasons.

those are my girls when they were little!  time goes by so fast!

I made the magnet with a glass pebble and

all you need a 5x7 roof tin (sheet metal section at Home Depot)

open the frame and place the roof tin on top of the glass

then place the paper that you want the background to be on top of the roof tin (don't glue).  close up the frame.  you only need to leave the glass in, so it's not moving around in the frame.  place your picture on top of the paper with the magnet holding it.  easy peasy!!! 

These make cute and easy Christmas gifts for family.  Just cut several seasonal pattern papers and make magnets to match!  That way they can change in with the seasons!
