I have a super easy and inexpensive gift idea for you today! You may have seen these around, but in case you haven’t and are struggling for simple gift ideas this year, I thought I’d help you out 😉
They really don’t even require instructions, all you need is clothes pins, Mod Podge and a stick-on magnet roll. I got a big roll at Michael’s for $2.99 and the Mod Podge is about $6. I used a coupon for both and so this project cost me about $6 total. I already had the clothes pins, but those are super cheap too, and if you don’t have scrapbook paper around, you’ll need some of that too–although fabric scraps will work fine also!
I made three sets of four today, but I plan on making quite a few more!
I will say that card stock weight paper works better with Mod Podge than the thin papers–I learned this when making the Barbie house last year! Fabric also Mod Podges really well, but will be messier–I would probably glue a larger than necessary piece on and then trim or file down with a nail file, rather than cutting the fabric to size first.
I put a layer of Mod Podge on the clothespin, stuck the paper on (I cut the paper to size beforehand), then after that dried, topped with two more coats of Mod Podge. Typical decoupage method 🙂
The magnet roll comes twice the width you’ll need. I just cut it lengthwise down the middle and then stuck it on. They work great! Not wimpy, which I was worried about. Don’t you just hate it when a magnet can’t even handle a single piece of paper without sliding down?? Me too 😉
