I don't know about you, but it breaks my heart when I spend a lot of money on scrapbook paper and only use a small portion of it. I save all of the bits and pieces knowing that I will use them somehow in the future.
This easy paper craft uses all of those odds and ends you have laying around and turns them into refrigerator magnets. Everyone could use a refrigerator magnet or two to hang up the precious works of art from our children, important notes, reminders etc. It starts with wooden shapes.
I found mine at the craft store for the bargain price of 29 cents per piece. You can't beat that!!
Just trace the wooden shapes with a pencil onto the leftover scrapbook paper. Cut the paper shape out with scissors .Glue the paper onto the wood shape with a glue stick. You can then embellish with contrasting paper shapes, bling, glitter, gems or whatever suits your fancy. After you finished embellishing, let everything dry. Once the shapes are dry, glue a magnet onto the back with a hot glue gun. Mom may have to help little ones with this step.
Place your magnets on your refrigerator and admire your craftiness!
