DIY {Scrap paper magnets}

Not sure about you, but I have TONS of little scraps of paper that is just too pretty to throw away. So what’s better than making a set of custom magnets instead of throwing all that cuteness away. I saw the idea here on Sei Lifestyle, her’s are super cute with sewing to boot.

I kept mine pretty fast and simple. Coffee sleeves provide the base.

Cut your coffee sleeves with a 1 1/2 inch circle punch. Do the same with various papers or stickers…use Mod Podge to glue them all together. Top it all off with a coat of Mod Podge then attach a magnet to the back.1109magnets-021109magnets-03

Add a bit of cute wrapping and you have yourself a fun stocking stuffer. I think this would be a great idea for girls to make for their friends…they would stick to lockers.

  • Donna Rankin - Hey Ashley — after visiting ya’ll in OK, Katy was excited to show me your blog. It’s full of wonderful ideas and beautiful pictures of your kids. I used to do crafting when my kids were little too. Makes me want to get back into it. : ) Katy and I talked about trying the clothespins using recycled Christmas cards to hold next year’s cards. I’ll keep you posted on that…..

    Happy New Year to you and your family!
    Love,
    Aunt Donna

  • Tonia Darge - Love this!!! I told my husband I will start this craft by going to Starbucks every day for week in order to collect enough coffee sleeves. Makes sense, right?!!!

  • Kelli - Ashley, I’d like to try this craft as I have TONS of scrap paper and have been saving coffee sleeves. I don’t have a circle punch though and I’m wondering what you’d recommend. Are there brands that make one punch with multiple sized circles or would I have to buy a separate punch for each different size of circle I’d want. I’m not sure how you respond to peoples’ comments here, but I’d greatly appreciate a response via email if you don’t mind: kellisblinn@gmail.com Thanks, Kelli Blinn
