Every month I make up awards for the top sellers on my team. We're about 70 strong right now so to be in the top three is really a result of hard work and out of the box thinking! I make their awards on magnets so they can put them up on their refrigerator and see their successes. Business card magnets are easy to find and just the right size. If you want to make an award or just a cool refrigerator magnet, here's one way to do it. Cut smokey plum cardstock 3 1/2 by 2 inches and distress with smokey plum ink. Cut a piece of white daisy cardstock 3 1/4 by 1 3/4 inches. Distress and attach to the smokey plum paper. Attach to business card magnets.
Using the "oval 1" key that we're working on this week on your Art Philosophy cartridge, cut an oval at 2 inches out of smokey plum cardstock using the "oval 1" key alone. Cut another oval using the "oval 1" key and the layer key out of white cardstock. This one has little decorative holes around the outside edge. Cut it at 1 3/4. Distress both ovals and attach to each other. (If the holes don't all punch out easily, use a piercing tool to poke them out).
Glue the oval piece on the front of your magnet.
To decorate I cut out the snowflake on the "oval 1" key out of smokey plum cardstock. You'll need to hit the shift key too. Cut it at 2 inches. Using the Snowflakes stamp set, stamp the center of the snowflake you cut out with white daisy ink. Attach to right hand side of the oval and add a sparkle in the center. Going back to the first key we used last week, cut a 1 1/4 inch circle out of white daisy cardstock using the "circle 1" key. Use the Save the Date stamp set to stamp a number of your choice in the center. Use foam tape to pop it up and center on the oval. Cut a piece of white cardstock 1 1/2 inches by 3/8 inch. Stamp the date of your choice on it in the same smokey plum ink. Cut a piece of white cardstock 1 1/4 inch by 3/8 inch and stamp the year in smokey plum ink. Use pop up tape on both the number and month as shown.
If you're wondering where the award with the number one on it went, here's my number one salesperson this month, Linda Hicks, holding it! Congratulations Linda.
