  • One 12″ x 12″ steel magnetic base with a printed grid
  • Four brushed aluminum magnets with soft foam backing
  • One flexible magnetic centering ruler



  • The steel magnetic base measures 12″ x 12″
  • Each of the magnets measures 1″ x 0.25″
  • The flexible magnetic ruler measures 12″ x 1.25″



  • Constructed of one piece of solid, sturdy metal so that it won’t bend or warp when you’re working with it.
  • Even though it’s metal, it’s lightweight and easy to pick up and move.
  • Take it on-the-go! It’s perfect for crafting on the couch, on an airplane, in the car, or anywhere else the mood strikes!
  • No sharp edges – the corners of the Make Art Stay-tion are rounded.
  • The ruler is 12″, with a center mark for perfectly-centered projects.
  • Can easily be used one-handed, or by those who have limited mobility in their arms, hands, or fingers.

How to use your Make Art Stay-tion

  • For stenciling, line up your paper or cardstock and place the stencil over it. Secure both pieces in place with your magnets. Your paper and stencil won’t slip or slide as you’re blending, adding ink, mediums, or paint in a fun, stenciled design.
  • If you want to ensure your stamps and sentiments are perfectly straight and aligned, place your card on the grid and secure it in place with the magnets. Use the magnetic ruler to find a straight edge in alignment with the lines on the Make Art Stay-tion and then get stamping!
  • For heat embossing, you’ll want to grab a non-stick, heat resistant craft sheet and secure it to the grid using the magnets. Place your project on top and then have some fun with your embossing inks, powders, and heat tool. Use caution, as the Make Art Stay-tion will become hot.
  • Create however you like! The magnets will hold a card or project in place so you can add layers, die cut pieces, accents, embellishments, and more without shifting as you work!

Tips for using your Make Art Stay-tion:

  • Do not use the Make Art Stay-tion as a cutting surface, as blades will damage it the metal and grid lines.
  • The magnets are strong – handle them with care to avoid getting pinched.
  • If you’re looking to make a creative mess with paints, glossy accents, or inks, use a non-stick craft sheet on top of your Make Art Stay-tion.

How to clean the Make Art Stay-tion

  • Clean up is so simple – grab a damp cloth and a little bit of dish soap to gently wipe the surface and you’ll be good to go!
  • Make clean up even easier when you use a Ranger Non-Stick Craft Sheet on top of your Make Art Stay-tion.
