Making your own Magnets

Today I was wonderfully inspired at the craft store. I happened upon some scrapbooking stickers that matched our kitchen and breakfast room *exactly*! I can only assume that the companies' artists must know each other... or be the same sweet gal. So I stood on the sticker aisle, puzzling over how I could possibly incorporate these stickers into my kitchen...


Of course, some of the stickers would have to be thrown away... the ones with the silly catch phrases on them. I've never been one for silly phrases.

...Thinking...

Ah! Magnets! I didn't have any matching magnets for my kitchen theme. I found a wonderful selection of magnet paper that is scissors friendly.

All you must do is trace the shape onto the paper, cut it out very carefully, and then peel off the sticky backing from the magnet paper. I bought the kind that was picture sized since it was most cost effective, and I had lots left over, so I'll put it away for future inspiration I think.



Now my fridge coordinates quite well!



Also, the Easter dress plans have been "revised". I'll post when I'm done! :)



I hope everyone had a blessed Good Friday.

Ooh, Lauren, you and I have very similar colored kitchens. Red and aqua/blue... I haven't done too much with cherries, but my husband bought me a great cherry apron for my birthday last year. Great idea for the stickers!
