I don’t know about everyone else….but I NEVER seem to have enough magnets on my fridge. I’m not sure what happens to them (I suspect they are hanging out with the missing SOCKS somewhere)…but when I need to put some sort of reminder up there…I have to steal a magnet from something else. Then all of a sudden THAT thing is falling down and after several failed attempts I feel like swearing! ;-)
So when I saw this idea at CreatureComfortsBlog.com I knew I HAD to make
This kind of crafting is right up my alley. Quick, easy, and only a few “ingredients”. I made a dozen of these in about half an hour.
The post on CreatureComfortsBlog.com used fabric to cover the clothespins and didn’t add the magnets. But I decided on some cute scrapbook paper…..and I HAD to have magnets!
|Ingredients: clothespins, cute paper, double-sided tape,
magnetic tape strips.
|Trace one of the clothespins then cut out. Use that piece
as a template to cut out the rest of the paper pieces you’ll need.
I decided on a an even dozen…for now.
|Put a piece of double-sided tape on one side of the clothespin.|
|Press piece of paper onto tape. Trim any excess paper and or tape.|
|Cut strips of magnet tape to fit and apply to other side of clothespin.|
|Use on fridge for various VIP’s (very important papers!) Or just put them up cuz they’re cute! :-)|
These also make great “chip clips” and clips for all kinds of things that don’t have their own resealable option. And as Savvy Reader Sharon pointed out below…by putting them on the fridge…they are always easy to find! :-) (Thanks Sharon!)
Clothespin magnets (that are SUPER QUICK and EASY to make) are today’s…..
