Refrigerator Fun!

>> Wednesday, May 26, 2010

Welcome!

Look what I found at my local dollar store ~


They're supposed to be put under furniture blah, blah, blah ;) They even come in 2 sizes and shapes ~



I just don't understand why they're not in the craft section!

These were so easy to make - I simply cut a piece of card stock to fit the inside and then stamped it with our Three Flowers with Butterfly (H1068). After I colored it, I taped it to the bottom of the slider and then added an assortment of jewels and seed beads. For the clear top I raided my recycle bin and found a piece of flat clear plastic that I was able to cut down to size and after carefully applying glue, I laid it on top and set it aside to dry.

The drying time gave me plenty of time to use Spaceboy Skip (H285) to make this one for a special little boy!

Once both were dry I added a magnetic strip to the back and my refrigerator magnets were ready for hanging!
I'm thinking these will make wonderful graduation party favors.
Thanks for stopping by!

How cool! I love it when ordinary things are made into really useful and pretty things instead, lol. Great job w/ these, Sue! p.s. my other fave place to hunt for good stuff is in the kids dept.
