Pimping my Framelits

I love Framelits.  I’m nowhere near owning as many as I’d like (this fact not helped by Stampin’ Up! teasing me with a new release every 6 months!).  Most come with at least one set of matching stamps too.  The coordination within the Stampin’ Up! range is one of the things that keeps me coming back for more.

This week on my doorstep arrived three sets of Framelits from the new Occasions catalogue – Speech Bubbles, On Film and Banners, plus the old style Envelope Liner Framelits (which are a bargain at only $27.95 at the moment.  Not only can you use these to make pretty liners for envelopes, but you can also make boxes, bags, pouches, tags and more!!!).  Shop here, if you’d like to add some to your collection and a free Sale-A-Bration product for every $90 spent.

With new framelits in my collection, it’s time to pimp out the packaging to make them as functional as possible.

The process: Off comes the cardboard backing they arrive on, and they get rehomed onto a piece of magnetic sheeting cut to size (available from ebay – one side is sticky, the other plain).  I then trim the information sheet in the packaging (keeping the side with English text) and attach this to the sticky side of the magnetic sheet.  Lastly, I use my amazing Stampin’ Up! glue dots to attach two 10mm neodymium magnets to the flap of the plastic sleeving.  This creates a magnetic closure, meaning I don’t have to tuck the flap in anymore.  The older style of framelit packaging came with a plastic snap closure, which I miss.  This makes my framelits so much easier to use!  And that’s what I’m off to do.  Now which set first … Kelly x
