Pantone Chip Magnets

I was crafting for the holidays and faced with the age-old question: What to get for my co-workers? I mean they spend day-in and day-out putting up with me! Lord knows they deserve something…and then I came across this tutorial which I bookmarked forever ago. As a designer you end up with countless Pantone chips sitting on your desk, and if you obsess over color like me, you just hate to throw them away so this craft is sweet. I used carefully-selected Pantone chips, white foam board, magnets, double-stick tape, paper glaze, and very strong glue. First step, double-stick tape the chip onto the foam board and trim. Next apply your paper glaze, I used this one. Once dry, glue magnet to the back. A few warnings: do not buy the rolls of sticky magnets, they work like crap and hold up nothing! But if you go with a traditional magnet that you glue, make sure you’re gluing the correct side down or they won’t stick (learn from my mistakes!)

To package them I printed a message on these stickers from Office Max, which are gold and fancy, and now I want to put them on everything!

Plant Markers

The women in my family are really, really into plants; we share cuttings from our favorite plants with each other and they become part of the fam. Confession folks: I might be a plant hoarder, owning over 40 potted plants scattered throughout our house and patio. So of course I kept those cute succulents from the tin can planter post, and in true Anna Lee Co. style I used the same crafting materials from my DIY wine charms to create some plant markers (inspired by this pin on Pinterest) for the ladies I love.
