Today, we have Steampunk magic in store for you, G45ers! Nico Scrap and Einat Kessler have two stunning projects that will amaze you! They use a combo of DIY Craft Rolls and Steampunk Debutante in such a magical way. Enjoy today's great ideas!

First, Nico Scrap takes a plain box and turns it into Steampunk magic! Note how he lines the sides with our Washi Tape. Such an easy way to make such a sharp edge!

Now, Einat shows how to take an old baking tray and turning it into magic! We love this tutorial she has below. Also, check out that adorable banner made of chipboard - love it!

"I’m a big believer in up-cycling so I hardly throw anything. When I decided I don’t need this baking tray anymore I knew I won’t throw it away and keep it for the right project. Well…the right project is here. I turned my old baking tray into a magnetic bulletin board! The amazing DIY Craft Paper gave me the perfect opportunity to create this up-cycling because it’s not only beautiful it’s also big enough to cover the tray in one piece!

Tip #1: When you need to create 3D look use leftover pieces of chipboard to create the necessary height.

Tip #2: You don’t need to buy special magnets for this project. Recycle old magnets from your fridge." ~Einat

Oh I love these projects, especially the first one.

Both projects are great but the magnetic board upcycled from the baking pan is brilliant - so perfect for the kitchen (the Parisian bakery), a child's room (think Mother Goose or ...), or the studio. What a super project. thanks for the chance to win

WOW! both projects are Amazing.

Love these projects! Both would make wonderful gifts for my steampunk loving daughter as she heads to a college dorm!

Amazing projects! I love the Steampunk Debutante collection!

I am always so amazed at the design team creativity and imagination! Both projects are outstanding!

I always enjoy seeing how to create a gorgeous box made perfect with Graphic 45!

What imagination shown on both these projects - great.
Many thanks,
Sue Mac

Todays inspiration is just beautiful:)

Love both projects.. STeampunk is my favorite design style..

Just think that magnetic board is genius and who doesn't need a trinket box!!! G45 designers are among the best!

Two great projects, and I don't know which one is the most fascinating! Though I must say, this upcycled baking tray wins a special prize for originality :-)

Definitely received great ideas and tips! Gotta love the daily dose of Graphic 45 inspiration!

Wow, just Wow!!!

Love the box and the Message center! Great projects! Love the give-a-way.

Just beautiful. I love up cycle.

These are great upcycles! Love both projects!

I am not a big fan of Steampunk, but all the gorgeous G45 Steampunk lines are definitely swaying my opinion! These projects are fabulous. I can already picture that magnetic bulletin board covered in Voyage Beneath the Sea papers. Such talent here on G45's blog!

Your two amazing creators designed outstanding projects - Steampunk-style!! LOVE THEM!!! And, YES - pick me to prove how much I'd love to win some GR45 products!!!!!!!!! The collection doesn't matter to me - LOVE them all!!

Wonderful projects yet again! I'm inspired by the baking sheet transformation - thinking of making a tray for a friend!

Thank you for the tutorial. Today's projects are awesome.

Pretty cool
