And the tutorial is...

I know. I know. This was supposed to go up on Monday. I really needed to take a break from all extra curricular activities though, and tend to a few things closer to home. I also had a hard time figuring out what to post about. I kinda wanted to do something Halloween inspired, but it is getting a little late for that. So instead I decided on something useful for your kitchen. I had some cloths Pins left over from the last tutorial so I decided to make some magnets. Sorry for repeating cloths pins, but they are easy and cute. So here it goes.

CLIP MAGNETS

MATERIALS
Cloths Pin
2 Craft Magnets (Not too strong, level 3-5)
Scrapbook Paper
Pencil Scissors
Mod Podge
Sponge Brush





DIRECTIONS
1. Trace with a very sharp pencil around cloths pin, and cut out.
2. Spread layer of Mod Podge directly onto cloths Pin.







3. Place strip of paper over Mod Podge.







4. Spread a second layer of Mod Podge over paper. Let dry 15-20 minutes.






5. Glue magnets onto back of cloths pin. Let dry 15-20 minutes.







All done! I'm giving away a set of 5 magnets! So leave a comment (make sure to leave your name) here before Wednesday Oct. 29th. Check back on the 30th to see if you have won.

Such a cute simple idea! I definitely need some more clips for my fridge, too many pics of little man and not enough magnets. Hoping I win! If not, I can always make my own. ;)

I had a quick question and I'm sure this is going to sound so stupid. I went to the store to buy the materials to make these. I didn't see anything called "craft magnets". I was at JoAnn's. They had magnets, but they were long strips of them. They had some circle magnets, but they would be too big for the back side. So, should I just try another place like Michael's? I mean, will the package actually say "craft magnets"?

Sarah I got my magnets at at Hobby Lobby and on the package it actually says craft magnets. I'm sure they would have them at Micheal's too. They were back by the wood crafts. I hope that helps!
