Super cute magnets!
I wanted to make sort of an information center for the side of our fridge. I got the idea from here (I also want to try her folder system, but that's for another day). In her post she used magnets to organize the information and I thought it was a great idea. I decided to make my own magnets and I followed this tutorial (have you been to Jill Scott's site yet...it's a must).
I followed her tutorial for the most part, except I used Mod Podge to also glue the paper to the marbles. Here are my almost magnets drying after adding the Mod Podge to the back of the paper:
For my information center I have a calendar, a menu sheet and eventually I will make a sheet to write down things we are out of. For my calendar I thought it would be fun if the magnets said the month and here's how that turned out:
I just used cute fonts (found here) and I typed up the months and put the scrapbook paper through my printer. I did a couple of practice runs with blank paper first to make sure the font was the right size. I actually used 3 different fonts and had to use different sizing for each.
I tried to use themed paper for each month. I actually still have some months to do because I didn't find the paper I wanted. But for October I used and orange paper and for February I used a pink paper with hearts. See (sorry again for the blurriness):
I also printed off the word Menu for the magnets that are holding up my menu plan. See:
So, there you have it...my Family Information Center. I'm really happy with the way it turned out and I think it will be really helpful.
