Halloween Wobble Spring Magnets

I am in a Halloween mood and decided to make Halloween magnets using homemade wobble springs and the Cricut Happy Hauntings cartridge.   


This cute magnet is cut at 5 inches from the Happy Hauntings cartridge. I only used the first layer and backed it with an oval piece of Halloween paper. I wanted a larger witch so I cut the witch at 3.2 inches using the real size button. To give the frame added shine, I used Glossy Accents and attached a magnet to the back. I think the silhouette look is perfect for Halloween! Too bad you can’t see the witch wobble…she is so cute!

To view my video on how to make your own wobble springs, click here. I used ¾ inch circles for this project and it worked great! I like being able to make my own wobble springs to use with the smaller cuts.
  
This magnet is cut at 5.1 inches from the Happy Hauntings cartridge and the cat is sized at 2.5 inches using the real size dial. Once again I only used the outside layer. Instead of using Glossy Accents, this time I used glitter paper. I like both looks, but the one made with Glossy Accents is my favorite! Lastly, I added my homemade wobble spring and a magnet.
