Without further ado, I give you...
Eco-Friendly Fridge Magnets:
- Clear spray paint (or Diamond Glaze)
- circle punches
- jar lids, bottlecaps, or wooden discs
- book or magazine with pretty pictures to cannibalize
- magnet (I cut up some freebie ad magnets to do these...)
- paintbrush or clean fingers
- White glue or Mod Podge
- hot glue or E6000
Stick the image in the lid. (Mine was too small, so I sifted through my embarrassment of scrap paper riches to find a suitable background. Trim it to fill in the space between the edge of your image and the edge of your applesauce lid.)
Coat your image (and words, if you're overachieving) with a coat of white glue or Mod Podge. Let dry.
Once the glue is dry, spray the lid with several light coats of clear spray paint. (Wait 20 minutes or so between coats.) You can also use Diamond Glaze for this step, but it's pricey as all-get-out, so I tend to stick with the spray paint, myself.)
When the shiny stuff of your choosing is dry (it's best to let them dry overnight to be sure...) use some hot glue or E6000 to affix the magnet to the back of your lid.
Done! Go stick something on the fridge with your kitschy new magnet!
