reuse (repurpose those free magnets)

cleaning 05.14.15
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.
  • I roughed them up with sandpaper, spray painted them with chalkboard paint. After that, I went one step further and made some mini fridge signs with some vinyl.

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 It always felt like a waste to throw those magnets away if not needed or out-of-date.

    Me too! I have all kinds of things just waiting for inspiration to strike me, but at least now, those magnets won't be one of them. Thanks Gail!

    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.
