Magnetic boards with the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder


When I found out that Sharpie made oil based markers that could write on glass and metal, I had to go get some!  I bought these magnetic scallop boards thinking I could make cute Christmas presents with them, but I wanted to give them a personal touch.  In came the Sharpie paint markers.  I added the white marker to the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder in the Cameo to draw this design.  Being I wanted a true single line font, I used Make the Cut with the Lettering Delights thin font called Swirl. 
I used a speed of 1 and a thickness of 1 to draw the design.  Keep in mind this metal board is double sided, and I did play with different speeds and thicknesses, this is what worked best and didn't smear. I also suggest you keep your design on the mat until it dries.
As you can see in the picture I used some painters tape to add this metal board to my mat in each corner.  The board is stiff so I added something under the end hanging out of the machine to support the metal board.  I do need to figure out some fun magnets for this board.  If anyone has any ideas on where to get any strong ones, please let me know!

They have these at Joanns, and sometimes you can find them at Pick Your Plum.

Nice! I'd like to know where your black thingys are on your Cameo bar??? Did you take them out purposely, and would they make this project smear? Thank you!

I did remove them from my machine. They can be slid to the right or left though if you want to keep them on. I have had no issues since removing them over 3 years ago.
