Fridge Magnet Christmas Cards!!

I wanted to make my nieces a simple but fun Christmas card this year that was abit more than a card.  As they are only 9 and 3 it had to be something appealing to them. 

When I was in the US, I saw some nice 3D Wooden Christmas toppers that were  painted and I picked up 2 so that I could turn them into magnets to attach to a Christmas card.

I painted the toppers in a clear American Arts Glitter Varnish to give them abit of sparkle and stuck a small magnet to the back with Anita's 3D Gloss as this sticks very strongly.  I chose some co-ordinating paper and covered a card blank and stuck a magnet onto it.  I then put the topper onto the magnet on the card and that was it!!!

Here are the cards - simple idea yet my nieces loved them when I gave them to them tonight!
