I love a good deal as much as the next gal, but what I love even more… free stuff!! I want to share with you a couple of projects to use with advertisement magnets that come on phonebooks or get stuck on your car. Yay for free stuff that can be refashioned!!!

The first project is a magnetic bookmark. Just cover the magnets with cute scrapbook paper and embellish with stickers.

I cut my magnets out in a tag shape using a sizzix machine (I also used my cricut to cut out magnetic shapes). I used a sticker maker to adhere the paper to the magnet. Embellish and tie together with a cute ribbon.

Just stick your page between the two magnets. A fun stylish way to hold your place.

I love that it is so easy to personalize something that you get for free!!!

Magnet Fun 4 Second project, magnetic chalkboard tags. I covered the magnets with chalkboard vinyl and then cut out with my cricut.

Magnet Fun 9These tags are perfect for organizing your fridge, magnet boards or just for writing little messages to your family.

Magnet Fun 6 Using fun colored chalk will add a pop to your chalkboard magnets. Add some fun doodles too!!!

Magnet Fun 7 There are so many possibilities with these magnets. They could easily entertain kids by becoming magnetic paper dolls, matching games, for learning shapes or the alphabet.
