Quick and Easy Christmas Gift Project - Rubber Stamped Wood Fridge Magnets

Wood can be colored with almost any sort of paint or ink, but I find Chalk ink pads, Copic Markers and Stazon ink the easiest to work with.

I start by coloring the wood shape, here I colored the entire shape with a yellow marker followed with a few swipes of color directly from VersaMagic chalk ink pads. Allow to dry for a few minutes, or gently pat with a paper towel and move on to rubber stamping with a StazOn ink pad.

I also made a night time snow scene with this stamp by changing the colors and applying white snow splatter (apply white acrylic paint on a toothbrush, spraying the paint by bending the bristles.)

Glue a magnet on the back and give it a coat of sealer and you've got a quick and easy handmade gift. I use e-6000 glue for the magnet, and a simple wipe-on sealer such as mod podge.

Happy Holidays :)
