Using VersaGrip Magnetic Sign Holder in an Unconventional Way

Hello, everyone!!  Kymona here to show you how I used Deflecto's VersaGrip Magnetic Sign Holder in an unconventional way!

My daughter and I hosted my niece and nephews this weekend.  I love having all 6 of them over at once.  My house is busy, noisy and fun.  My little people love crafting with me, so I created a super fun coloring station for them!

Whenever they didn't feel like watching TV, playing outside or on their tablets, they could color on their own time. Once they finished coloring, they would display their coloring using the Deflecto's VersaGrip Magnetic Sign Holder!!

Take a look at the Deflecto's VersaGrip at work:

I think my little people love seeing their work on display more than actually coloring them, LOL!! 

I used some Christmas Cherry Cobbler Sweater Trim Ribbon to decorate the metal stem.  It adds to the festive feeling.  The table that these VersaGrips are sitting on isn't metal, and they do not fall down at all.  As a matter of fact, the magnetic bottom pushes the other grips away if the kids put them to close and they love seeing them move!! 

I love walking past this station and seeing their work change every couple of hours! 

Deflecto VersaGrip Magnetic Sign Holder attaches magnetically to metal surfaces. It holds materials up to 3/8" thick.  The knuckles tilt and rotate from the top and the bottom! It is 7" in height.

The Perfect Christmas Card Holder

Looking for the perfect solution on how to hang all those beautiful Christmas cards you receive each year? This Noel Christmas Card Holder is so easy to create you can pull it together between cooking the turkey and wrapping gifts.


I pulled some cute die cut shapes from my Christmas box and adhered my letters one to each die cut.

I used Tombow Xtreme Tabs to adhere the embellishments to the top half of the VersaGrip Clips. These little tabs are CLEAR and they hold so well it is amazing.

For this project, I used the Wide Clip Sign Holders and the Double Clip Sign Holders. Clip the embellished clip to a ribbon leaving the bottom clip empty for your amazing Christmas cards! (How cute are these little canvas Reindeer??)

How to Decorate Your Photo Frame for the Holiday

Hello, everyone!!  Kymona here to show you how I decorated my Deflecto Curved Magnetic Frame for the holiday season!
I love this time of year because I get to spend time with my family!  All of us do not live in the same state so this time of year draws us close, and boy do we have fun. We take pictures like its going out of style!  I love to capture those moments that people do not usually think about!
Let's take a look at this super cute photo of my niece:

I asked her to lie down on the floor on her belly.  Then I placed the camera on the floor set the timer and took the shot. I totally loved how this photo came out because photos aren't "normally" taken with the persons head cut off.  Her smile and her small hands were all I needed for this photo.

To enhance the black and white photo, I decorated the front of the Deflecto Curved Magnetic Frame with a couple of ADORNit Christmas Jingle stickers.  It took no time to jazzy the frame up.

I love that the Deflecto Curved Magnetic Frame is clear because you could create whatever look you want.  WAIT!!  As I'm writing this post, I had another idea.  You can add another photo on the other side for a double effect.

There are two border stickers and two stickers outlining the sentiment! Simple and elegant! 

The Curved Magnetic Frame, 6" x 4",  securely floats photos/signage between two plastic panels. The panels snap together with the embedded magnets, which makes it super easy to add and/or replace different items.

What do you think?  Will you decorate your photo frames this holiday season? Please let me know below! If you have any questions, please leave them below as well!

Every month Deflecto recognizes several members of the design team for their innovative and fun designs.

A Decorative Alternative To The Family Refrigerator.

Hello, Sue here and this picture of me with my grandsons is one of my favorite photos. It’s been hanging around on the fridge for a couple of years now. 
I decided to make a Framed Magnetic Memo Board that I can hang on the wall and swap out the photo’s in the magnetic frames whenever I feel like it.

I started with an old picture frame with the glass removed. 
I adhered the Magnetic Craft Sheet from Deflecto using double sided adhesive on the frame backing with the black magnetic side up. 

Next, I covered the black magnetic sheet with a “thin” piece of plaid scrapbook paper and inserted it back into the frame. (TIP: using thin paper is the key to the magnetic sheets sticking together) 
To make frames: Cover magnetic sheets with scrapbook paper. Cut magnetic sheet with a craft knife and mat or use a wood die cut frame to cut out the frames. 
You can also create small word magnets using scrapbook paper and the magnetic craft sheets. 

Thin metal dies will not work to cut the magnetic sheets, but it would be a great way to store them!

Thankful Sign Holders

Hi, crafters! Monica here sharing a creative way to use Deflecto's Mini Slanted 3" x 4" Sign Holder. Each year as Thanksgiving approaches I try to come up with unique ways for my kids to express themselves. Since we all know after a certain age, it seems like they forget how to talk right... lol. So this year I took the mini frames, flipped them over and hung them almost like you would a stocking from your fireplace. 

I simply added a piece of cardstock to the inside of the frame and then decorated the outside.

Once done then simply take your VersaGrip Wide Clip Sign Holders and clip it to the bottom of the Mini Frame.  I added a photo of my son and daughter and used words that I thought fit each kid the best.

Then I clipped a notepad onto each of them so that each day as we walk out or in we would see them and easily can take it off and write down something thankful. Then at the end of the month, we all sit and read what we wrote the entire month. 

This is a super fun idea for the family. I hope everyone enjoyed my post and thanks for stopping by.

Using Deflecto Mini Sign Holders to Create Cute Table Placement

Hello, everyone!! Kymona again with another super cute project for you to try this holiday season. I have a big family, and we love getting together. My parents have six children and seven grandkids, so we fill two to three tables easily!! 

This year, we will have just a table for the little people in our lives. They love sitting together so that they can talk and eat with one another. So I thought it would be cool, to create table placement cards for them using the Mini Slanted Sign Holder 1½" x 2".

Take a look:

Supplies used:

2. Simple Stories Hello Fall Pattern Paper
3. Oval Punch
4. Photoshop/Microsoft Word
5. Dimensionals

I can't wait to see the little people in my family face's when they see their name on the set table. They will love it. 

Creating these were simple! All I did was cut Simple Stories Hello Fall pattern paper down to size seven times. Then I used Photoshop to create the name tag for the Mini Slanted Sign Holder 1½" x 2". I then used an Oval Punch to cut out the names then adhered them to the pattern paper using a dimensional foam adhesive.

Take a closer look:
