I LOVE Prima Flowers! I also have so many that I was having trouble finding a good way to store them. I don’t like storing the ones in the tins stacked up because I have trouble remembering what colors I have. So, I took a trip to Home Depot and started looking for a solution. I wanted something that would be both functional and pretty at the same time. I found galvanized metal sheets that measured 10″ x 10′, so I brought it home and got to work and this is what I came up with.
Magnetic Prima Flower Tutorial:
Galvanized Metal, Glue Gun or Extra Strong Double Sided Tap Runner, Ribbon, Stamp Set, Staz On Ink, Old Scissors or Metal Snips, Hole Punch, Magnets and Prima Flowers or Other Supplies you wish to hang up.
Un Roll metal, measure and mark your length, and cut metal. I used an old pair of scissors that already have a nick in them because I didn’t have my metal tip snips handy.
Stamp design with Staz On Ink and let dry for about 10 minutes. The ink takes a while to dry because the metal is not very porous.
Use either a tape runner or a glue gun to attach ribbon. I used a 2 inch wide ribbon and adhered 1/2 to the front and 1/2 to the back of the metal.
I used a glue gun on one and a tape runner on the 2nd one. I found it easier to control the tape runner.
Use hole punch and punch a whole in each corner and on the bottom middle and top middle. I used my cropodile. I then used screws to hang it up. I used my hot glue gun to adhere magnets to the back of my prima flower containers. The number of magnets that I used was based on the weight of the item. I used 2 on the tin containers and 4 on the glass containers.
