magnet crafting

I love a fridge filled with my kid’s artwork, proud school achievements, friends and family, and chore charts.  It’s just another way to make a home cozy.  However, in the midst of all that loveliness I also love a wee bit of organization.  That’s where fun magnets come in!

Before I left for India, I did a bit of magnet crafting to help tame the busyness.  A few simple ideas and I was able to spruce up the beast that holds our cold foods.  I had other grand plans, but I’m still trying to figure out the best way to implement the ideas in my head.

The kids love Izze drinks (and I do, too).  I bought a 4 pack as a special treat and started looking at the bottle caps.  I loved that it had no words and a simple flower.  I bought a pack of round magnets at Walmart, stuck them on the fridge, and stuck the magnet on top of that.  I tried gluing the cap to the magnet, but the magnet was so strong that every time I pulled it off the fridge, the magnet stayed behind.  Anyone know of a special glue out there for metal and magnets?  For now, I’m happy with them.

I also found these super cute over-sized paper clips in the One Spot at Target.  These did get a magnet glued to them and they are holding quite well.  They have been perfect for holding the Music Maestros that the kids bring home from music class.
