reuse (repurpose those free magnets)

Do you get those advertiser magnets? I get them on my phone books. They are usually coupons or calendars. I've been saving mine, tucked away in a drawer until I saw a blog friend change hers up. That inspired me to get busy.

    Gail, I love this idea. I've always saved all those magnets too. I used them when making magnets over the years, but never thought to paint them. Too cute! Thanks for passing this idea on.

    Gail - I have my grandchildren's names spelled out as magnets using these old scrabble pieces on my fridge. I am on the hunt for more letters to spell out my granddaughters name. LOL

    Fantastic idea. It always felt like a waste to throw those magnets away if not needed or out-of-date.

    I like your creativity. I have been gluing my kids school pictures on my advertisement magnets, cutting them down to fit. I think I will try your idea and but each of our names on one, so we can find our notes easier.
