bright idea - button magnets

  The other day while I was sitting at my desk supposed to be doing my schoolwork I thought of a plan. Not an evil plan to dominate the world or anything like that, but simply a blog post plan. My plan was that once an a while I would share a "bright idea" here on my blog - little fun, creative ideas that anyone can try. It may be an idea of my own or something I found on a website or magazine that I wanted to share with you all. And it can be any kind of idea - like a home-made gift, a room-decorating tip, something yummy to bake, or just something fun to do when you're bored.

  So I decided to try it out. Tell me what you think :)

"cute as a button" magnets

Here's something I thought up the other day. You see, I had a long strip of magnet with double stick tape on it. What can I do with this? I wondered. And then it struck me. Buttons! Buttons are cute and colorful, so why not use them as fridge magnets?

What you need:

a strip of magnet (I believe it comes looking like this, and I'm sure you can buy it at any craft or DIY store)

double sided tape or hot glue gun


cute, colorful buttons

All you need to do is:

1. Cut small pieces off the magnet strip

2. Place the double sided tape or glue to the magnet piece and stick the button on.

Voila. That's it.  Very simple. But it turns out really cute. You can use them to hold up photos or notes on the fridge, use them to decorate your locker if you go to school, or whatever else you can think of :)

I hope you all are having a wonderful day :)
