Now, no offense to those of you who have the traditional alphabet magnets on their fridge (you know, the brightly-colored plastic magnets shaped like letters), but don't these magnets spice things up a bit?
I love them! There are so many possibilities when making alphabet magnets like this. Here I used "western" themed alphabet stickers I found at a craft store and stuck them onto to paper that looks like old jeans. Then glued a magnet on the back and a large clear stone on the front and voila!
Here's another option that Emily made. This set uses plain black lettering and different paper backgrounds. Same idea, whole new look!
These magnets are really easy and fun to make. There are many tutorials available online, here's a link to one: eHOW
Also, you can typically find supplies to make them at any craft store, but they are also available online (Craft Supplies For Less for example).
We've both made variations on these magnets for gifts--who doesn't like stylish magnets? My 3-year-old also discovered that these could stick to the wall around her window frame (must be framed with metal?) so she magnets all sorts of stuff up onto her wall.
Oh! and no time to make them for yourself or just want to see more of our fun designs?
