Do you have as many magnets as we do? Thanks to my friend Joyce at Quilted Nest, here's a lovely idea to re-purpose them. Mr D has a collection on his file cabinet so I took a few that were outdated and re-purposed them. First I sprayed primer on the magnets to avoid a see-through (lesson learned from Joyce!).

The wording on the left came from a gift bag - the one on the right from a wedding card, both cut to size. I used Elmer's Craft Bond spray adhesive to glue it to the magnet.
These are sprayed with chalkboard paint; however, I did not sand the magnets and the paint does chip if handled roughly. So if your grand kids want to play/write with these, it's a good idea to do some sanding. :) These are on the frig as a few of the 'littles' enjoy writing on them. This is a simple project to do and sometime I'll get a brainstorm to use them some other place!
