|Tree Slice Save-the-Date Magnet!|
As soon as I said YES, I started using pinterest and stumbleupon to find wedding ideas. I prefer internet browsing since it involves less paper. I, also, really hate buying magazines to tear out maybe one useful article. Anyways, I came across this idea to make a tree slice magnet. At first I was like awesome, it goes with our Adirondack wedding, but then I was like bummer it is not very treehugger (more like treekiller).
|Yes a Ferngully reference!|
1.5-2" wood slices (I got 100 for $15)
wood burning kit ($10 online)
pencil (super cheap!)
hot glue gun and glue (already had)
magnetic strip (already had, but I think I found it cheap on Amazon)
Step 1: Draw your design with pencil onto the wood slice (I had to go with M + S because S + M looked wrong!)
Step 2: Get fiance to wood burn the design for you (Not bad for a Lefty)
Step 3: Glue magnet to back (I also wrote with thin sharpie on the back "Made from Recycled Wood")
Step 4: Come up with pretty packaging design with the rest of the info
P.S. You don't have to do this just for save-the-dates! How cool would it be to burn a Victorian silhouette into one of these! Or any design really, be creative, and feel free to share!
