  • 1. One at a time, attach stamps to acrylic block and use black ink to stamp approximately 20 characters, words, and phrases onto various papers. Leave at least 1/2" space between images. Let stamped images dry.
  • 2. Use 5" Precision Tip Scissors to separate shapes, and then cut around each shape, 1/8" from edge. For words, follow each letter shape and go from letter to letter, and from word to word.
  • 3. Depending on size of stamped paper shape, choose larger or smaller magnet; if needed, use two smaller magnets. Attach magnets to backs of paper shapes using Quick Dry Glue.
  • 4. Very lightly print greeting on chalkboard. If you make a mistake, simply erase with damp paper towel and let dry. When pleased with look of phrase, firmly trace lines with chalk using a wiggly, spooky stroke. Arrange magnetic shapes all around border.
