Cute Dollar Tree Pot Holder Magnets

5 Materials
With a glue gun, strong magnets and about 15 minutes, you can make this nice set for yourself or as a gift!
I purchased a set of pot holders from the Dollar Tree.
You simply get out the hot glue gun (high temp is best for this one). Fold one up 1/3 the way and glue the sides. Some of my glue oozed out, so I just stuck a purple rose on each end.
Put in a post it note pad and small pencil or a couple of pens and you have a nice little note pad holder. You can glue magnets on the back for the fridge like I did.
The next is cute, too.
Fold one over at the angle, and glue under the edging. This is perfect for scissors, and I even added straight pins, safety pins, and needles to the front.
Again, magnets on the back lets you put them on the fridge or in my case the metal file cabinets that keep my sewing table up.
Learning from my mistakes will make your project more fun for gift giving. I will make more of these, but will make them out of two sided holders.
The apple doesn't show in each of these and that is a shame.
They are about 1.50 for the set. If you buy a new pair of scissors then add another 1.00 but that is still pretty cool for yourself or someone who loves to sew or keep notes handy.

Suggested materials:

  • Potholders   (Dollar Tree)
  • Glue gun   (Had at home)

    Do you know how hard it is to buy a simple little coin purse? I can't find one. Show me how to make one and I will no longer search!

    Never thought of the gift idea !! Tx!! Now I have a place for my scissors on my sewing machine!! Scissors are always dropping to the floor because the material pushes it off! I use my dining table as I don't have a sewing nook

    I am glad I could help. I too have a small craft area and love things up off the table. These do make nice gifts and if you have a person on your list who loves all things re-purposed...then get them at thrift shops for a gift they will love!
