Make Wooden Heart Magnets As Favors

Last time I shared one way of making magnets as favors for your wedding. This week, I would like to share with you an idea that one of our subscribers had on how to make magnets as wedding favors. Pamela e-mailed this idea to me, and I am very grateful for her willingness to share her idea with all of you. Here is what Pamela is doing:

Wooden Heart Magnets

You will need:

- "Wood Hearts"
- Wedding-Colored " Acrylic Paint"
- Small Pieces of "Ribbon" or "Rose" Decals
- Stamp of your names and wedding date (or thin permanent marker - and good hand-writing!)
- Strip of "Magnet" or Small Round Magnets
- Hot "Glue Gun" (or 2)

* All of the above can be found at your local craft store. Or, don't forget about the discount that has extended to you:

FREE SHIPPING on your order of $40 or more at -- your online destination for fabrics and crafts! Use promotion code BWEDD40 at checkout. Hurry, offer expires 8/31/01*!

* $40 minimum does not include tax or discounts and excludes purchases from Partner Stores. Promotion code cannot be combined with other promotion codes, limit one time use per person.

(By the way, I checked it out, and I did find most of the items on their site by searching on the words in quotes above. Ex. I found Rose Decals by searching on "Rose".)

To start the project, paint the front of each of the hearts with your wedding color(s). Place them on a paper towel and let them dry. When they are ready, write your names and wedding date on each of the hearts.

Let me interject here to say, obviously this is going to take a bit of time and effort, especially if you are having a large wedding. Here is Pamela's advice for you, "What better excuse to have a bunch of girlfriends come over and have fun. Gather them up and have a craft party!"

If you have enough people, you could even get a little assembly line going - one person paints, two people write, one person glues, and so on.

Take the Challenge!

Do you think you can handle it? Here is our challenge: 1) Sign up for our free trial with all of our add-ons. 2) Create your site by entering info. about your wedding, how you met, etc. 3) E-mail a link to your site to at least 5 friends and ask them what they think. If your friends don't enjoy your site we will give it to you for free. So, take the challenge!

Next, make sure to have your hot glue gun warming up while you are writing. Once the names and date are on and dry, begin gluing the roses and/or ribbon on wherever you would like them. (Pamela is gluing hers to the top of the heart and she is also putting lace all the way around the heart.)

Finally, glue or stick the magnets onto the back of the heart. If you would like your guests to be able to hang their favor in their house or on their Christmas tree, you can also add some ribbon to the top for them to hang it by.

As always, be creative! I am sure that there a ton of different ways that you could change these directions to make them unique to you and your wedding. Pamela has even made her magnets even more special by adding some symbolism to them.

In her wedding she is going to have a Rose Ceremony. Instead of giving each other just one rose, she and her fiance are going to give each other three roses - a red rose for love, a white rose for purity, and a yellow rose for friendship. On her magnets she is gluing one of each of the colors of the roses at the top of the heart to remind her guests of that special part of their ceremony.

Well, Pamela and I both hope that you will find this personal way to say "thank you" to your guests fun and easy! Good luck to you to and always remember that your relationship is more important than your wedding!
