Holiday Magnets by Judy S

My Grand- daughter should have material which is not smooth so she can feel the textures.  Feeling textures builds up /stimulates her touch sensors.  If you have or know of children with this disorder/Austism, this makes a great gift for them!! Check with their parents first, as they may be hypersensitive to textures. 

Using my Bosskut Gazelle machine, I cut thick magnet vinyl.  Betsey, a Gazelle owner on our forum, suggested buying magnetic air vent covers from your local hardware store. Bosskut.com also has magnetic vinyl for purchase.

 These vent covers are thicker than regular magnet material and my Gazelle cut it without a problem!!  Patterns used for designs are available at www.bosskutdiecuts.com

 Materials used was faux football vinyl,thick mulberry paper, and glitter paper from Bosskut.com.  A word about the glitter paper I used; it is covered with a sealant and doesn't flake. This paper is gorgous and cuts well!  All the materials used are textured and Presley will love playing with these, feeling them and hopefully not eat them!   Further directions available on the Fall Pumpkin post from last month.

Happy Holidays!   Judy Tesla- Stark
