Magnets and a Paperweight

First off...I apologize for the awful photos.  While these marbles have a nice pearly sheen in real life, they are terribly hard to capture in photos.  Anyway, I hope this is good enough to give you an idea.  I used stamps from AL-1 (Sakura Alphabet) to spell out a name for a refrigerator, dorm room, filing cabinet, etc.









 While I was at it, I also made a paperweight using SC-5 (Aiko With Daisy).  I got the paperweight at Ben Franklin...it looks tiny, but it has a 2-1/4" diameter.


Now that I have these made up, I thought it would be fun to give them away.  Instead of hoping that a "Kristen" would want them...I thought I'd give them away one by one.  So, to enter...your name (or a loved one's name) needs to start with the letter K, R. I, S, T, E or N...be the first to claim each letter with a comment on this post telling me what the name is (one entry per person, please).  I'll also do a random drawing from the comments for the paperweight (anyone can enter for the paper weight)...enter by Wednesday and I'll announce the winners on Thursday.

Making magnets and a paperweight with the Dandelion stamps is such an awesome idea. I love them! I would like the "I" magnet for my friend Iris. Please enter me for the drawing the the "I" as well as the magnet. Thanks!

What a cute and clever idea to make magnets from the Sakura alphabets. I love that set. So glad my name starts with an R for Roberta. Loved the paperweight, too.

I have my boys that are "I for Isaiah and E for Eli". Very cute idea. Thanks.

My daughter's name is Ellie so the "E" would be great or the paperweight would look amazing on my desk! Thank you for the cute ideas!

Cute magnets, and paper weight. Cannot enter for the magnets because I cannot think of anyone whose name starts with those letters, but I can at least enter for the paper weight!! Thank you.

Shannon said...

I'd like to enter for a chance to win the paperweight for a friend! Thanks Jean! :)
