I love those "I Voted" stickers and I wanted to do something with mine.  So I made a magnet



I used Aleene's Paper Glaze, blue ribbon, and a piece of cardboard.  It didn't come out perfect, but I like it.  Did anyone else make any "I Voted" sticker projects?  (I saw the cookimistress' necklace, and that was quite awesome)

i think the stickers are fun too. If I mail my ballot I don't get one. If I drop it off I do. I save them but couldn't think of anything fun to do with them. Thanks for the idea.
The magnet might look a little better if you had cut the ribbon rectangular. I have to go look for the necklace now...

Great idea! but I have a quick question for you. I've tried Aleene's paper glaze and mine did not dry transparent, it had semi transparent milky white finish to it. Did you notice anything like that or maybe I just got a bad batch?? i use diamond glaze and a 3D laquer but I was hoping that product would be the same. Just curious.

Awesome! Another great idea! I wore my sticker for a couple days, it's at home now. I will definitely have to craft with it!

It's fun to see the different stickers, too.

Actually, mine was a little bit milky.  That may not be apparent from the pic. I think it was because I put it on too thick?

I'm not sure I understand what you mean, but the ribbon was an afterthought because the cardboard looked stupid... it's just wrapped around the cardboard.   If I did it again, I would have put the ribbon on first so I could do it more neatly.  Maybe in 4 years Smiley
