Magnet Doll Up

Happy Thursday!!  A few weeks ago I scored few packages of Making Memories flower petals from Tuesday Morning for $1 a package. (Oh Tuesday Morning, how I love your little craft section!)  I knew they'd come in handy for embellishing something, I just didn't know what.  Then when I saw packages of clear round magnets at the dollar store (and maybe I bought something like 10 packages), I thought some pretty flower magnets would look lovely on my fridge.  And maybe they'll work to distract company from the dirty fingerprints..

This was the best kind of project - quick and instantly gratifying.  Here are my supplies:



Just take one clear magnet, hot glue three flower petals of varying sizes and finish it off with a small button. 



And now off to clean those darn fingerprints!

Truned out great. I have some of those magnets from the dollar tree. I haven't used them because they were not strong magnetics, but looking at your flowers I might have to reconsider and use them just for decoration purposes.
